A judges committee set up by the Danish Plastics Federation will select the winners based on the following three criteria: is the use of plastics optimal? Is the project operationally realistic? And is the academic level high?
Assessment criteria for PROJECT PLASTIC
The projects are assessed based on the following three criteria:
1. Optimal use of plastics: The project must demonstrate the innovative use of the plastic material and its characteristic properties. Examples are: design freedom, low weight, recyclability, low price, not corrodible, well suited for mass production, etc. Also, a project can address sustainability and environmental themes such as recycling, weight reduction, or circular design. Projects exploring other themes are also welcome.
2. Operationally realistic: The project must include ideas that are possible to carry out in practice and will make a difference in the real world
3. High academic level: Considering the level of study, the winning projects must hold a relatively high academic standard and challenge views on the use of plastic to lead to new and innovative ways and methods. At the same time, it is important that you also need can explain your idea in a manner understandable to non-engineers.
Projects are assessed in relation to the study level, as well as the time/credits available for the project.
Assignments/projects on a bachelor and master level are welcome, and there are no requirements regarding the number of ECTS.
