What is Rat Relay?

Rat Relay is a unique three-day global product design hackathon organized in the Design Factory Global Network. In Poland Rat Relay is organized at Warsaw University of Technology, Warsaw Design Factory (Center for Innovation and Technology Transfer, ul. Rektorska 4, 00-614 Warszawa, 3rd floor) Rat Relay simulates real-world situation in industrial product development where very often one individual person or team is only working on a project for a limited time and not from beginning to the end. Rat Relay projects rotate around the world in slots and projects are provided by sponsoring companies, startups or NGOs. The slots of 6 hours consist of teams (5-10 people) working in one stage of the product design process and then passing it along the Design Factory Global Network. During the 3 days we will cover the 6 stages of design thinking with 6 6-hours slots, resulting in 36 hours of work!

Why should you participate in Rat Relay?
It is a one-time opportunity to work with real-life problems based in open innovation, sponsored by real companies, startups or NGO’s. Anyone can participate and you can even be in more than one of the slots in Rat Relay. You will be part of a mixed team where students, citizens, company representatives, university staff, teachers and researchers are welcome to join!
All the problems should have some kind of social benefit and a global aspect, so you have a wonderful chance to get a global reach in a short timeframe. The result will be a design and prototype of a concept or a service.
