Match Tournament Final Pitch Event

The Match Tournament hosted and delivered by Match Studio has seen interdisciplinary teams of students led by an academic work with a community organisation or government agency and representatives from an associated policy agency to identify issues related to the development and sustainability of inclusive and age-friendly communities. 

As part of the Adelaide Festival of Ideas, Match Studio invites you to experience the final pitch in a fast-paced afternoon packed full of ideas about how local governments and communities can think differently about ageing. After 12 weeks of working together in their interdisciplinary teams, they are ready to show you what they’ve got! The winning team will be funded to travel to Copenhagen during the mid-term break in September to meet with participants of a sister challenge as well as visit other organisations and institutions related to their collective efforts.

What is Match Tournament?

  • Match Tournament is a 12 week challenge hosted by UniSA's Match Studio that will give you credit for a 4.5 unit course.
  • It will challenge 6 interdisciplinary teams comprising of 4 students each led by an academic and will culminate in a Grand Slam Pitch Event. Teams may include undergraduate and up to 2 postgraduate students.
  • Teams will work with a community organisation or government agency and representatives from an associated policy agency to identify issues related to the development and sustainability of inclusive and age friendly communities - real life experience!
  • Match Tournament supports learning about how to access and understand what the plethora of data collected about us says about our communities. It will then step you through design-thinking and co-design processes to develop either a product, policy, service or system that supports age friendliness in our communities.
  • The winning team is funded to go to Copenhagen during mid-term break in September to meet with participants of a sister challenge as well as visit other organisations and institutions related to our collective efforts.
