How to participate?

As a student, you must upload a 2-page idea description. 


The Idea competition for Higher education has a high level of evaluation criteria. The level is higher than for youth education. But the Idea competition for higher education is built around the same categories as the Start Up Programme competitions.

The judges and the signed-up teams are combined in ways so that the different teams within the four categories receive the best possible evaluation from the external judges.
