The winning team proposed a mobile application for student-parents with young children (until age three) in the academic sector with three main goals: sensibilization through the real experiences of parents, support and communication with the university and each other and the info desk, information about the place for changing, breastfeeding, half-day stay, available parking spaces, online classes etc.
Purpose of the solution is to promote the study of student-parents and empowering student-parents, providing equal opportunities and fulfilling the university’s social role.
This innovative university policy will have a long-term effect on gender equality at the university, but also in the community through the easier inclusion of student parents in the labor market.
