The project course will be running during the spring term 2022 (P3-P4).  Please see below for more information about the case organisations and the application process. 

The overall aim of the 10 ECTS course is to immerse students in questions related to social and environmental responsibility or humanitarian logistics by using, analysing, and solving real-world problems provided by case organizations. The students will form groups of approximately 3-4 persons and work with a project for an organization. Depending on the nature of the project this will entail work for the organisation for e.g., half a day every week over 8 weeks. During the project period, students will gather valuable working experience and knowledge about a specific issue in relation to social and/or environmental responsibility or humanitarian logistics. For more information please visit WebOodi
