The WACEE Challenge Process

The selection of the WACEE challenge 2019 will be done in 2 phases. In phase 1, participants will submit a one-page summary and a short video (2 minutes maximum) clearly defining the problem(s) and proposing groundbreaking solutions.

Selected finalists will present a more detailed concept in phase 2 and pitch their proposed solution to a panel of judges. Each presentation will be followed by a brief Q&A session with the jury. The judges will select the winners who will be invited to attend WACEE’19, receive a stand for free and present their business model on stage to the visitors.
