The objective of the project is to anchor student work in concrete sustainable development issues in the Outaouais post-secondary institutions using an experiential education approach. This project serves to influence the life trajectories of students in order to create bridges to the world of university research and/or business start-ups. As a collective project, it will allow the consolidation of an entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial culture (student life) in continuum.
This project is also a way to develop strategies to improve the student experience and to create knowledge and decision-making tools for institutions based on student projects.
