The 2016 APRU ULP 2016 was a 10-day enriching program for outstanding APRU undergraduate students from multidisciplinary fields. With the theme, “INSPIRE: Next generation of innovators”, the summer program offered participants the opportunity to develop competencies to create solutions to real problems of global relevance. The selected students participated in a DESIGN LAB where they created innovative proposals and gained new perspectives on co-creation in a multidisciplinary and multinational context. Programming activities included theme-related lectures, master classes, seminars and workshops with cultural and social activities focusing on leadership, knowledge and creative economy, new technologies and innovation, cultural innovation, design thinking, sustainability and entrepreneurship. These activities were designed to help students further develop their leadership skills and competencies. Distinguished faculty, facilitators and exceptional students were invited as speakers and resource persons.
