COMPETITION GUIDELINE

Please read through this guideline carefully. 

 

​01 THEME - NEW MATERIAL 

We invite you to be part of this exciting opportunity to innovate for the next generation of materials for the future automotive + transportation industry. The automotive + transportation industry is ever changing, but now at a faster rate than ever imagined in its history. 

Electric car sharing, commercial spacecraft, and interactive/ smart vehicles are just a few examples of the areas where young design talents are needed. We are looking for innovative new material concepts that could radically change what our cars, trains, airplanes or even spaceships look and feel like in the future and beyond. 

This competition will focus on the three most significant design directions for the future:

Sustainability, Biomimicryand Smart Material Design. 

Therefore, your new and innovative material could be about:

1.    How to produce the new material itself, or 

2.    Your vision of a new application for your material. 

If you think that your material concept is a bit far out or looks too much like science fiction, rest assured that we are very interested to hear about it.
