The G-BiB is a competition open for teams of 2-6 Bachelor, Master and/or PhD students from universities and universities of applied science in the United Kingdom, Finland and Germany. All teams must announce a mentor from their university.
Challenge and Procedure
The challenge is to create a pitch deck based on a design for sustainable production of bio-renewable products such as biofuels and biomaterials or partial solutions that will support developing those products. You will get to know the other teams during a joint kick-off event in October 2020 and get support in writing your pitch deck during a masterclass held in the UK, Finland and Germany. National semi-finals will announce one national winner that will participate in the transnational final held in February 2021 during the CLIB International Conference.
