student challenge ​europe



The Bio-based Innovation Student Challenge Europe (BISC-E) encourages students to explore the emerging field of bio-based work while developing a new bio-based product or process. Are you ready for the challenge?

The Challenge

All students ( Ba/Ma/first-year PhD ) teams develop a bio-based innovation (product or process) and present their ideas live in a 15-minute PowerPoint presentation to a jury of industry and academic experts during the Croatian final. The presentation must be accompanied by a dossier explaining the sustainability, technical and economic feasibility of your innovation. The top 3 teams will be selected for the Croatian final based on the recorded presentation and accompanying dossier to present to the jury, followed by some Q&A.

Who can take part?

The competition is open to all Bachelors and Masters students (+ first year PhD students). Due to the multidisciplinary nature of the competition, it is recommended to combine several disciplines in your team, of which exact science should be one. Team members can come from different institutions.
