  • TELANTO also has a portfolio of commercial companies (hereinafter “Companies”) which have such Challenges and wish themto be studied by Students on one or more of these courses so that solutions to these Challenges can be proposed by the Students.
  • Finally, TELANTO has developed and manages an internet platform known as the TELANTO Academic Business Cloud (ABC) (hereinafter the “

    Platform

    ”) for the matching, cooperation and joint tackling of such Challenges. Data in diverse forms can be entered on this Platform. In particular, text, image, audio and video submissions can be shared among users and files uploaded and stored (hereinafter the “submission/s”or“content”).
  • The Platform is located and can be accessed via www.telanto.com.
  • The subject of this Contract is on the one hand the matching of Companies and courses so that the Students on these courses can study and try to solve the Companies’ challenges, and also to make the Platform available to all parties hereto as a tool for collaboration and group work.
In addition, these T&Cs govern the rights and obligations of other persons with granted access rights to the Platform by TELANTO (hereinafter the “Users”). Any reference made to ABC in this Contract shall refer to the Academic Business Cloud, a form of licensing which enables the use of the Platform without taking part in ABN and which may be the subject of a separate agreement.

Clause 2: Calls for Challenges

  • Any academic responsible of an academic program (e.g. a degree program, master’s program, bachelor’s program or vocational training) with access to the ABN who wishes to set a Challenge for the Students of their course can put out a ‘Call for Challenge’ (hereinafter “C4C” or, in plural “C4Cs”) on the Platform at any time by completing the appropriate form.
  • The number, scope and timing of C4Cs which an Educational Institution undertakes to put out within a given period is defined in the respective form within the ABC create Call for Challenges. The academic responsible understands the binding nature of the information provided through the beforementioned form and to commit to the undertaking of the Action Learning program.

Clause 3: Challenges

  • A company with a problem, project or business idea, which it would like to be studied by a course in the ABN may create a Challenge at any time on the Platform by completing the corresponding form.

  • A Challenge can be specially created in response to a specific C4C. In this case, the company should endeavor as much as possible to adapt it to the C4C. However, a Challenge can also be simply created unsolicited at the initiative of any company.
  • The creation of a Challenge is the sole responsibility of the company, even though TELANTO may be at liberty to support certain aspects of Challenge identification, articulation and matching to an appropriate course.

TELANTO reserves the right to review challenges and if necessary to adapt them to the requirements contained in the first paragraph of this section.

Companies may decide to place challenges in more than one Educational Institution to obtain more than one solution proposal or respectively inquire to obtain several solution proposals from a single Educational Institution and a respective course at the digression of the course responsible.
  • At any time, particularly if a Challenge has not been selected by any course, TELANTO can request the company to amend it. The company will try its best to adapt the Challenge to the approved courses taking into account their academic level, number of Students, course syllabus and other resources.
  • TELANTO does not assume any responsibility for unmatched Challenges, be it due to the insufficient definition of the Challenge, that is not meeting a basic possibility for a match of an upcoming course, due to the rejection of the Challenge by the course responsibles during the ‘evaluate to select’ phase or the subsequent ‘student bidding’ phase.

Clause 5: Solving

  • Once a match has been established and the solving phase begins, the Students of the approved and assigned courses start studying the Challenge.

In this case, the response of each team is considered a separate response to a Challenge.
  • Students shall document their progress by completing various forms provided on the Platform. This Contract prescribes neither the content nor form required for a final solution. Instead, the solution is simply considered to be the status of the aforementioned documentation at the respective point in time of the solving phase. The course responsibles must support their Students’ progress to the best of their ability: they must teach, assist and encourage them by means of for example evaluations, grades, credits and consultations such that the final status of this documentation corresponds as far as possible to what the company may expect as a proposed solution to its Challenge from a course of its respective level. Although the measures listed are to be exercised at the sole discretion of course responsibles, they can accept no liability to the Companies in this respect.
