Compete in the Sensors4Water challenge by designing a sensor to solve a water related problem and win €1500,-


Think smarter

Why would a bright student like you need a summer course, if you could use your summer break to write down your ideas on paper and participate in a contest to win 1.500 Euro!

Do you have an idea for the perfect sensor solution for a water related problem and are you a student? Then we are looking for you!
All we ask you to do is design a sensor that can solve a problem related to water quality, asset-, or water management. Take up this challenge now and crank your talented brains. Share your thoughts on what type of sensors would be the biggest success product.

Your contribution must be kept simple and short. Most important is to convince the jury in a written pitch, and why your sensor would need to win. Furthermore, the contribution must contain a 2-3 A4 description of:

  • 1. the sensor
  • 2. the water problem
  • 3. how the sensor contributes to the solution and the extent to which the sensor contributes to the solution. Furthermore it must contain a draft design of the sensor solution, a drawing or sketch either in 2D or 3D.

Please send your contribution including contact details before August 18th to brand@sensoruniverse.com

The contribution will be judged on ingenuity, originality and applicability by four experts in the world of innovation, water management and patents:

  • Ir. Dirk van der Woerdt, Waterbedrijf Groningen
  • Dr. Mateo Mayer, Easymeasure BV
  • Dr.ir. Gerwald Verdijck, Arnold & Siedsma IP Consultancy
  • Dr. Maarten Nederlof, Centre of Expertise Watertechnology

The winning contribution will be presented during the Sensors4Water conference on the 9th and 10th of September 2013 in Assen, the Netherlands and will win €1500,- , free tickets to the conference for the winner and 2 colleagues as well as tickets to the Drents Museum and Gronings Museum.

More information about the Sensors4Water challenge and conference can be found at www.s4w-conference.com or contact Anna Brand through brand@sensoruniverse.com
Of course, even if you decide not to participate you are still invited to join the discussions on global developments in sensor technology in the water cycle at a reduced student fee. You can register via www.S4W-congres.com.

Please note that if you want to protect your designs you will have to arrange for this yourself.
