Innovation is the core of our philosophy. This is why KLEEMANN sponsored the first International Student Competition, “Invent for the Planet”, which promotes innovation created by young minds. The competition -a collaboration of Texas A&M University College of Engineering and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki- took place from 15 to 17 February 2019, with 35 universities from all over the world, taking part.
The intensive 48-hour experience -created to promote innovation and creativity as well as the students’ communication skills- had students forming groups and solving real problems via inventing valuable business ideas. The teams started by researching the topic, then each team had to come up with a plan and finally to build a simple prototype, before presenting it to a panel of judges.
The three big winners will travel to Texas for the grand final.
