What is Green Challenge?

Green Challenge is DTU’s 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 the 23rd 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 3 week course at DTU. For this second option, a contribution in costs for accommodation needs to be paid.

The themes of the Challenge are: “Sustainability, the Environment, and Climate technology”. The challenge aims to include interesting Bachelor and Master projects as well as student team projects. Categorizations are used to ensure that projects are comparable. Projects need to be pitched at DTU in front of a jury. The participants and audience of the Challenge ensure a mixture of different cultures, backgrounds, topics, research, applications, business opportunities, and more.

Simultaneously to the presentations of the student projects, a market is organized where companies, institutes, and municipalities can present themselves to the students and others interested. The Challenge is open to General Public (as an audience). This 3 day visit to DTU/Copenhagen offers you therefore the opportunity to meet easily with energy professionals, students, lecturers, and all kinds of interesting people with sustainability at heart.
