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?
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.
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.
Participating in BISC-E23 offers you a
valuable entrepreneurial experience in the emerging bioeconomy, in developing a
new product or process with all its aspects and in presenting innovative ideas
to a panel of experts. In addition, there are great prizes to be won:
First prize: € 1000
Second prize: € 500
Third prize: € 250
If your team becomes the national BISC-E23 winner, you will be invited to represent your country at the European final.
