and the environment.

Green Challenge is your opportunity to test your idea and challenge your presentation skills. Futhermore you can win prices from the total
prize pool of 240,000 DKK.

Think big - Think new - Think green

Every year, the work of incorporating green and sustainable initiatives into DTU teaching culminates in a major Green Challenge student conference. This is your opportunity as a student to present your green study project or idea for a project in sustainability, the environment and climate technology.

Be seen and heard
Green Challenge is not just a competition offering the chance to win cash prizes, but equally a day where students can showcase their projects and visions for professionals working on the same problems.

This is your chance to crystallize your ideas and visions. It is not every day that you have the opportunity to command the industry’s full attention, get professional feedback and develop a new network in your future field. The conference concludes with a barbecue and live music.


Want to join in?
To participate, you must have developed a project whose theme is sustainability, climate technology or the environment as part of your studies at DTU. The manner in which the theme is incorporated into the project is entirely up to you. You can participate with specific product ideas such as an eco-friendly mobile phone charger technology, optimization processes or research findings. All DTU students are encouraged to participate with green projects, regardless of study programme or educational level. The conference is also open to overseas guest students at DTU.
