Modalities

Case Study

In the Case Study category, the teams have the opportunity to analyze and solve two problems based on a real scenario. For this, the team can use several means of research and creativity, having to present a solution in 24 hours. These challenges range from technological to economic problems. In the end, the participants have to submit a report and deliver a presentation to a panel of judges that will evaluate their performances.

Team Design

In the Team Design category, the objective is to build a prototype, using limited materials, that responds adequately to the requirements of a previously presented problem. Thus, participants will have 24 hours to design an efficient solution based on their technical expertise and problem-solving and decision-making capabilities. The prototypes will then be evaluated by a jury based on parameters previously defined by the organization.

National Round

The national round will be organized in cooperation with the five Local Groups of BEST in Portugal and will have the participation of 40 students, distributed in both categories, 8 of whom will represent FEUP and/or FCUP. It is scheduled to take place in Lisbon from the 26th to the 29th of April.
This is a project of great relevance, since it involves seven of the largest colleges in our country, thus reaching a large number of students.

Final Round

The two best teams, one for Case Study, one for Team Design, will represent Portugal on the Final phase of the competition that will be held in Turin, Italy from 24th July to 1st August 2019. In this round, all the winning teams of European national rounds will be challenged on Case Study and Team Design.
