The idea behind the event is to showcase how student initiatives are working to drive innovation and sustainability alongside and aided by academia and other societal actors, through the specific case of South African Hydro-IT’s journey to-date, followed by a generalised moderated discussion with a panel of 3-4 people recently students and/or involved with research, with experience of leading cross-border, entrepreneurial, academic-to-practical projects. The aims are to enlighten participants about concrete student innovation for sustainability, to show that South Africa-Sweden international collaborations are desired from the student side and fruitful for innovation, especially in the field of sustainability, and for universities and participants to learn, from the examples and discussion at hand, how they can aid and leverage the innate potential in student led projects to drive innovation.

Keywords: Student innovation, international collaboration
