EuMW 2018 Student Challenge


When: Wednesday 26th September, 2018
Location: Exhibition Hall

Eligible students are invited to take part in the Student Challenge during EuMW 2018. The Student Challenge is an opportunity for Bachelor, Master, and Doctoral students from all over the world with a variety of academic backgrounds, to work together on a specific topic in the wide and challenging field of microwaves. The aim is to promote innovative thinking, teamwork and pro-active behaviour; skills future employers will highly value. Kick-off will take place during the first break on Monday 24th at both the student and the doctoral school.

Each team is composed of a maximum of four members, preferably from different institutions and with a variety of backgrounds. All
teams will present, explain, and defend a fresh, visionary, application oriented concept by a short presentation (ePoster). The presentation must be based on at least two papers presented at the EuMW 2018, of which only one paper may be authored by a member of the team.

Eventually, each team will give an elevator pitch of the innovative concepts they have devised. Hurry up, register promptly, the number
of participants is limited!

Evaluation Criteria:
• Novelty of the idea
• Relevance of the solution/vision proposed
• Feasibility of the idea
• Clarity of the poster
