BISC-E compitition adapted to Corona virus outbreak

A number of student teams have already made the necessary preparations to participate in the student competition BISC-E, the competition developing biobased products and processes that can reduce the use of fossilraw materials. 

The outbreak of the Corona virusthat we have to adjust the set-up of the next edition. To give the students extra preparation time, the registration period is extended to April 1.

The kickoff meeting of April 15 will be replaced by a video conference. The final will remain a physical meeting for the time being. If this is not possible, the teams present their idea in a short film that is assessed by the jury together with the background documentation to be supplied. 
For the time being, the international final, scheduled for October, will be organized in the usual way. In the coming months it will become clear whether the design of this should possibly also be adjusted
