Do you want to design a creative bio-based solution in a multidisciplinary student team? The Bio-based Innovation Student Challenge Europe (BISC-E) encourages students to explore the emerging bio-based work field while developing a new bio-based product or process. Are you up for the challenge?
All teams develop a bio-based innovation (product or process) and present their ideas via a powerpoint presentation to a jury of experts from industry and science. The presentation has to address sustainability, technical feasibility and economic viability of your innovation. You don’t need to produce your product yet, but you and your team should make it plausible that it could work.
The Delft student team WaterSkins has won first prize in the student competition BISC-E with their idea for the production of synthetic leather …
The challenge is open for 4th year students of university of applied sciences (HBO) and university students (BSc and MSc) in the Netherlands. Due to the multidisciplinary character of the challenge it is recommended to embody multiple disciplines in your team, of which exact science should be one. Team members can come from different institutions.
Participating in BISC-E will give you valuable experience in the emerging bio-based work field, in developing a new product or process with all its aspects and in presenting innovative ideas for a panel of experts. On top of that there are great prizes to be won:
