Opening Week 2008

Let’s get to work

The focus of the 2008 Opening Week was the case study "The Labour Market and Structural Change", in which students developed solutions and strategies for rescuing the fictitious town of Leinwig from economic misery. Students examined Leinwig's current economic and social situation and analysed the labour market in an effort to revitalise both the town's economy and the quality of living. On this basis, they then developed new approaches designed to make the town a more attractive business location for existing companies and potential new arrivals, and to offer exciting leisure opportunities and amenities for local inhabitants.
Academics and professionals in the field provided support for the freshers in this challenging task. They helped with academic approaches and research and presentation methods. The case study and Opening Week 2008 ended with a final presentation of the concepts developed and the proposed solutions to a jury of business, science, research and politics professionals.
