The goal in the Team Design category is to project and construct a prototype, with limited materials, that follows the requirements of the presented problem.
In 24 hours, the participants should plan an efficient strategy, that leads to the resolution of the problem, and then, present it.
Case Study powered by Mckinsey & Company
In the Case Study category the teams have the opportunity to analyse and solve a problem based on a real situation.
To do that, the participants have access to several research tools and realistic resources and they have to present a solution in 24 hours.
The solution should be able of being applied by a company or organization.
EBEC is for all the students studying sciences and technology enrolled at the University of Lisbon.
Teams must be of 4 students of sciences and technologies of University of Lisbon, who should be present throughout the whole competition.
Team members can be from different courses and years.
The competition itself has a duration of 24 consecutive hours. There are also time periods assigned for workshops and projects presentations.
Participants are selected based on a team application which, depending on the category, are rated according to specific criteria defined by the organization.

In the Case Study category, you’ll have access to a Welcome Kit with all the materials that you’ll be needing. For the Team Design category, you’ll have access to a store where you can “buy” the materials for the construction of the prototypes. This “purchase” of the materials will be done using points, so you’ll have to manage your resources in the best possible way in order to spend the least possible.
