At Wärtsilä, we believe in collaboration and working together as an ecosystem. Through co-operation we can enable and foster change and innovation. This is what STHEC is all about. The event gives students the opportunity to work and innovate as team but also as a part of the competition ecosystem.
What is STHEC?
An event where students across different universities and universities of applied sciences work in interdisciplinary teams and solve real challenges provided by Wärtsilä and our partners.
During the competition, each team come up with a product, service or business idea as an answer to their challenge in question. What you create and how you make this happen is up to you! The teams compete against other groups within the competition ecosystem consisting of customers, service designers, facilitators, coaches and of course, the judges (sharks). The event final includes each team pitching their ideas to" the sharks", who will both challenge the ideas and offer feedback. In the end, the overall winning team receives a grand price. Other teams is also be rewarded based on success in different categories.
