A fun registration event to pitch ideas, create teams and meet like-minded student-entrepreneurs. You don't need to have a detailed business case or even a team to attend, we will help you get on your way to compete in the BISC-E 2023 Student Challenge!

 The 'From Trash to Treasure' Kick-off Event is a part of the BISC-E student competition.

What is the BISC-E Competition?

All student (Ba/Ma) teams develop a bio-based innovation (product or process) and present their ideas via a 15' live presentation to a jury of experts from industry and science during the Belgian final. The presentation has to be accompanied by a participation file with a few supporting documents explaining sustainability, technical feasibility and economic viability of your innovation.  

The jury will first assess all applications via an online preselection based on a recorded presentation and the supporting documents. The 3 best teams will be selected for the Belgian finals to actually present for the live jury, followed by some Q & A. The winning team will receive personal coaching and will compete in the EU finals in Autumn.

All rules can be found in this regulation document.
