What is Green Challenge

Green Challenge is DTUs annual student conference to promote and increase focus on sustainability. Here, students can present their green projects to fellow students, professors, alumni, industry professionals, and politicians.

TU/e students are invited to compete with other (international) students at the Green Challenge organized by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) on 24th of June. Specifically students of partner universities, like TU/e, are welcomed. To the International students, DTU offers an additional, interesting three-day program for free, to introduce the city of Copenhagen and the University. Alternatively it is also possible to take part in a three weeks course at DTU. For this second option a contribution in costs for accommodation needs to be paid.

Themes of the Challenge are: “Sustainability, the Environment and Climate technology”. Interesting Bachelor and Master projects as well as student team projects are targeted by this Challenge. Categorizations are used to ensure that projects are comparable. Projects need to be pitched at DTU in front of a jury.

Participants and audience of the Challenge ensure a mixture of different cultures, backgrounds, topics, research, applications, business opportunities etc. Simultaneously to the presentations of projects of students, a market is organized at which companies, institutes, municipalities etc. can present themselves to the students and others interested. The Challenge is open to General Public (as audience). This three day visit to DTU/Copenhagen offers you therefore the opportunity to meet easily with energy professionals, students, lecturers etc.
