Student Idea Competition
Each year the Student Project Team organises the Student Idea Competition where you can pitch your idea to a jury of experts at Maastricht University (UM) and win up to €500 to kick-start your idea and make it a reality.
The aim of the Student Idea Competition is to improve student life at UM. The SPT, together with UM departments, develops the Challenges and assigns student teams to each of them. Then, the teams develop their original and long-lasting effects ideas to solve the UM Challenges. Once they have completed the first phase, the teams are offered workshops in preparation to the final award ceremony in front of the UM jury.
During the finale, the team with the best idea will win €500; the second-best idea will win €200, third-best idea €100.
Conditions for taking part
- You have to be a student enrolled at the UM.
