TransNEXT Open Innovation Challenge

Creative minds wanted for power, grids and security

How are power grids developed securely and stable beyond 2050? This is the central question for students and young scientists at universities in the south and the main challenge of the TransNEXT Open Innovation Challenge 2021. Together with bwcon and Steinbeis, the Baden-Württemberg energy provider TransnetBW is offering a challenge where students and academic staff from our Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology are invited to contribute their interests and knowledge to think about a successful energy transition together.

The Challenge starts with the kick-off workshop on September 24, 2021, and ends with the Pitch Day on November 12, 2021. Interdisciplinary teams are to work together to find new solutions for the power supply of the future. The aim is to learn from each other, network and gain experience. The winning team will be rewarded with EUR 5,000 to be donated to educational, environmental and social charities.

Applications are open from May 5 to June 15, 2021 via the form on the TransNEXT website.
