We are very happy to announce that the applications for the Biobased Innovation Student Challenge Europe (BISC-E) have started. At this stage, each country that wants to participate should appoint an institution (national coordinator) to manage the national student applications.
It is very important to encourage small teams of students from all over Europe to express their innovative ideas on the circular Bioeconomy. In this regard, as it is already well known, the Biobased Industries Consortium has adopted the BISC-E Challenge with the goal to host at least 20 EU and EAA countries in the 2022 competition. Therefore, your country is officially invited to join.
Challenge steps: National and European Finals
Each country is to participate with a selected national student team. Ideally, each country should have a national competition among BSc- and MSc-student teams from various universities of applied sciences. The national winner will then represent your country in the European Final this Autumn.
In case you are unable to run a national competition, we propose a transitional solution i.e., the country could appoint a national student team to participate in the European Final.
Participation is open to teams from all universities of applied sciences in your country and thus not limited to those that are BIC members. The Regulations for participation can be found at BISC-E.
The European Final among all national winners is coordinated by BIC who also covers the eligible costs, including money prizes for the winner: first, second and third prizes. You can see the full First Prize package here.
