A brand-new university model allows learners to gain practical problem-solving and teamwork skills.

“The very decision to enrol in the master’s studies was an adventure and from the very beginning, I knew I would use this period to the fullest. Therefore, as soon as I heard about the ECIU challenge I decided to take part in it,” says Rūta Pelikšienė, a master’s student of the KTU Social Welfare and Policy chose the Kaunas Transition to Circular Economy challenge. This challenge was proposed by Kaunas City Municipality in spring 2021.

According to Rūta, participating in the challenge made her step out of her comfort zone from the very beginning – she chose to solve a challenge related to the circular economy, without ever hearing about the concept before!

“I have not regretted it for a second – this experience has given me technical knowledge as well as the chance to develop various skills. I got better at time planning and, most importantly, have proven to myself that insurmountable challenges don’t exist,” says Rūta.
