EBEC Challenge Local Round 2023

Stay tuned for the announcement of our next edition of EBEC Challenge!



The Case Study (CS) is a theoretical challenge in which students are given a technical, legal, practical or social problem that needs to be solved within a
limited time and with limited resources.
For this purpose, the students need to abstract and analyze the problem and present their solution.


Innovative Design (ID) focuses on the skills of the students with which they can create a prototype supported by a plan of how it can look in a real life environment. It just needs to illustrative enough for the future implementation and isn’t expected to be fully functional.

The challenges will be done in teams of 4.

You will be able to either register a whole team or apply just by yourself and be matched with other people.


Any student of the Friedrich–Alexander University Erlangen–Nürnberg can participate.
