Some shots from UX Challenge 2018:
In case you are neither a company not a student (or a student who recently graduated) you can jon the UX Challenge as a tester. Testers will take part to activities by providing feedback on ideas and solutions built by solvers. To be a tester does not require any particular skill: just come with your creativity and perspicacity. To join the UX Challenge as a tester you first need to subscribe to Smart Crowds!
Solver teams are supported by designers and user-researchers, professionals and researchers, who work as mentors. Being a mentor is an excellent opportunity not only to test your skills, but also to meet promising students, other professionals and companies with which you can activate future collaborations.
