How to participate?

As a student, you must upload a 2-page idea description. Read much more about how to register and about the Idea competition in the above link.


In the Idea competition we reward creativity, innovation and newsworthiness. We focus on a high level of innovation, where new ideas are related to existing ideas/products. The Idea competition especially rewards value-creating innovation - innovation that is realisable.


The Idea competition for higher educations has evaluation criteria at a high level, higher than for youth education. Apart from that, the competition 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. 



The Idea competition takes place next time in November 2020

Deadline for applications is announced later.
