It's a wrap for the first Erasmus University Challenge!

WOW! We are still buzzing from the energy in the Excelsior Stadium on September 15th. Thank you to everyone involved - especially to all participants and finalists as well as partners, coaches, jury members and of course the amazing crowd!

CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of the category awards of the Erasmus University Challenge 2022: Minus & CO (Ideation) and OASYS NOW (Prototyping). VECTOR platform got the recognition of the audience in the form of the Audience Award – congrats! We also want to thank Shell for awarding team Minus & CO with the Energy Transition Award.

Last but not least, we want to thank the Erasmus University and Erasmus Enterprise for all of their hard work and dedication during the entire time.

In the past months, we went from 35 inspiring projects, to eight amazing finalists. We appreciate that so many students participated with their brilliant and innovative ideas - without your bright minds and ideas, there is no Erasmus University Challenge. We look forward to seeing you grow and wish you all the best in the future!

We will see you all next year!
