DORP is a seven day innovation program that lets you and a team of students, young professionals and experts from different backgrounds work on your project.

At DORP we’re assisting you and your team by providing a well equipped workshop and you’ll have full access to coaching, expertise and practical experience via our network of universities, organizations, businesses, governments and other festivals. Besides all that, we’ll be organizing workshops and inspirational and co-creating sessions, making sure that you’re ready for every day with your head full of new insights and ideas.
