On December 16 2022, the University of Zagreb organized a full day of "UNIC Day" activities, with the aim of promoting UNIC, its values and goals at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. UNIC Day was designed as an interactive set of lectures, workshops and discussions between students, teachers/scientists and other partners institutions representatives (City of Zagreb) on topics covered by the UNIC project (post-industrial cities, diversity, (green) mobility, etc.).
After an introductory and welcome speech by the head of the UNIC project of the University of Zagreb, dean of the Faculty of Law, Professor Ivan Koprić, presentations and discussions of teachers and students involved in the project followed. Participants were presented with the project results achieved so far and with expected results in the future period. In this part of the program students who participated in different UNIC activities (student mobility, workshops, UNIC city laboratories, etc.) shared their positive experiences. As part of the UNIC day, a round table was organized on the topic of strengthening cooperation between the University, the City of Zagreb, private and civil sector organizations and other interested stakeholders.
Talks and Lectures
In the second part of the program, students participated in creative workshops focused on diverse topics important to the University and the City (University campus, green mobility, etc.). Relying on an interdisciplinary approach, students and teachers as their mentors from different faculties, divided into different groups, tried to formulate solutions for some of identified challenges at the University of Zagreb, but also at the local community as a whole. In the final part of the program, students presented their conclusions from workshops, which was followed by interesting comments and discussion from all participants.
