CollaborationLucid has a close connection with companies in many ways. First of all because our students often work in close relation with companies in their projects and internships. Besides that we as association want to give our students a look into what the future can bring for them. In order to do so we have several activities with different companies each year. The activities vary from a brainstorm session, a visit to a company, a design case and everything in between. Up till now we have worked together with many different companies each with a different outcome. Below is an overview of the companies we have worked with in the past two years and the activities we did together.
