Because there is no physical fair anymore, the judgment will be done online by the jury.
After the online judgment the ranking will be done in Gold, Silver, Bronze and Encouragement. The Gold-winners will be invited for this exclusive program. All winners will receive an certificate.
Phase 1 of the judgment is based on the completion of the registration of your project. In this phase we will check whether you have completed the registration in the system as required. Projects that are not complete are automatically disqualified.
In this phase we will make a TOP 100 list of the best ‘two’ projects of each country. Our judges will select the best two projects. Projects that are not selected during this phase are automatically disqualified and/or put on a reserves list.
In this last phase we will announce the ranking of the TOP projects. This includes the Gold, Silver, Bronze and Encouragement awards. The Gold-winners of the online judgment will be granted an invitation for the international program of INESPO in September 2017.
After the online judgment and the ranking, the Gold-winners will be invited and are expected to participate at the International Program of INESPO in September 2017. Only the 10 best projects are eligible to attend this program as winners of the online competition. The program will last 5 days, and there will not be any competition or exposition during the entire program. There will be a lot of traveling during this program including visits to companies, universities, schools and more! See below what you can expect from the Winners Program.
The most important part of the program is networking. As one of the winning students you were able to make a project that can make the world better. Companies are very interested in such projects and the students behind them. During the program we will connect you with different companies within the field of your project. You will be able to network with them, (try to) setup potential business proposals and more!
The Netherlands is known for its prestigious universities and highly qualified professors. To improve your project and enlarge your network we will connect you with many professors from different universities that are experts on the topic of your project. This is an amazing opportunity to exchange ideas about your project and may result in a potential future scholarship!
To improve your educational knowledge we will organize several activities in different Dutch universities. In small groups you will attend educational seminars, lectures and workshops that will help you to broaden and improve your scientific knowledge. This will also facilitate getting in touch with universities for your future studies.
Meeting other students is part of the program. During the program you will visit Dutch schools and students that have participated at INESPO earlier. You will get the opportunity to give presentations and inspire those students.
Parliament and Embassies
The Netherlands is very interested in students who come up with great ideas to make the world better. Because of that the politicians and ambassadors are always looking forward to welcoming you at the parliament and the embassies.
As usual during INESPO we will go on great touristic excursions, taking you to some of the most popular Dutch sites such as the city of Amsterdam, Zaanse Schans, Canal Tours and more!
