Are you, or do you know, a student or PhD candidate with a brilliant idea for how science and technology can support our society’s efforts towards sustainability?

Then our €20,000 CESAER Student Challenge 2023 will be your opportunity to form a team and benefit from unrivalled access and support from over 50 leading universities of science and technology across Europe. We are looking for novel ideas displaying scientific & technological excellence aimed at having a sustainable impact. Diversity in teams and ideas is highly encouraged!

In addition to a cash prize up to €20,000, our association will provide the winning team with a platform directly to the leaders and experts from our over 50 leading universities of science & technology. The winner and runner-up student-leaders will be our invited guests, with travel and accommodation covered, to join us and be on stage during our flagship annual events CESAER Annual Meetings 2023 which this year will be hosted by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid from 18 to 19 October.

The students from our Members are encouraged to form inter-institutional, inter- and transdisciplinary and vertically integrated teams to enter this competition, for example, formed through and supported by their European University Alliance.

This webpage will be updated with the latest information as it becomes available, including the portal to submit your contribution, and guidance information to help our Members and students for their submissions.

The deadline for submission is 31 July 2023.

We encourage Members to forward the details of the competition to students and PhD candidates at their institution.
