Nedims idea took him all the way to Panama

Nedim Karavdic won STINT-prize in Idélab's idea competition with his project Wheel Fitsom, a training app for wheelchair users. The prize was a trip to the Universidad Tecnológica de Panamá (UTP) to present his project to industry experts and professors.

Thanks to the Idélab competition at MDU, I had the incredible opportunity to visit the Universidad Tecnológica de Panamá (UTP). The feedback, insights, and critiques I received from computer science, entrepreneurship and sports department professors were invaluable, broadening my horizons and enhancing my future work, says Nedim.

He says that the experience has been so much more than the journey itself. It has been about knowledge, contacts, memories and motivation for further work. And he thinks that students should take the opportunity to apply for the next round:

I would like to take this chance to thank Mälardalen University for this life-changing opportunity and UTP for the warm welcome. If you are a student at MDU I would definitely advise you to follow Idélab’s announcements and sign up for the next round since there are many rewards and opportunities waiting for you!


Idélab offers students, researchers and staff at MDU counselling in idea and business development.
