Students, staff and partner organisations celebrate their achievements during the Collaborative Project Show 2019

On Tuesday 5 March 2019, students, staff and senior representatives from each partner organisation came together to celebrate the outcomes and achievements of the latest Collaborative Project module.

In its biggest and most ambitious year to date, the Collaborative Project module saw postgraduate students from across the campus work in 166 multi-disciplinary teams to deliver on briefs set by 32 partner organisations.

From helping Chelsea FC to implement a digital-first internal communications system, to helping WaterAid to enhance accountability of providing safe drinking water, the Collaborative Project module has enabled students to make a significant and meaningful contribution to individual organisations, as well as industry and society.

A spokesperson from NHS England said they were:

very impressed with the support of academic staff but most impressed with the knowledge and ideas of the students.

The outputs will be developed further to contribute towards improving the country’s healthcare services.

Organisations to join the module this year include Mobike, Kit Radar, William Joseph, Emissions Solutions Ltd (EMSOL) and Considerate Hoteliers.

The Collaborative Project, now in its fourth year, is open to every full-time and part-time student at Loughborough University London.

Reflecting on her experience, Digital Technologies student Olga said:

The thing I enjoyed the most about the Collaborative Project was being a part of a driven and enthusiastic team. We all loved the brief that we had been given and enjoyed what we were working on.
