Ideas Contest

Here it goes again!

Submit your application to the ideas contest of the Frankfurt UAS. We are looking forward to your submissions until August 15, 2017!

This is what it is about:

The Ideas Contest

Sometimes great things start with a simple idea…

Do you have an innovative idea for a product or a service? Would you like to receive professional feedback? Are you a student, staff member or alumni of the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences?

Then submit your application to AppliedIdea, the ideas contest for start-ups at the Frankfurt UAS. Motivate yourself and take a closer look at your idea. Use the chance to let our experts analyze your idea and win one of the attractive prizes with a bit of luck!

We would also like to support you with extensive consultation offers in implementing your idea and establishing a start-up, if you are interested!

Your application: Nothing to lose, you can only win!

Submit an outline of your idea with the application form (s. right side bar) via post or email by August 15, 2017. The ten best idea proposals are selected by a team of experts.

Our jurors will determine the three best ideas based on a presentation held by the participants on October 26, 2017. The publication prize is also determined, which is awarded with a material prize in the frame of a festive event on November 15, 2017.

We are ready to support and assist you in case of questions with respect to the drafting of your idea and implementation during the entire competition and afterwards.

Please find more information with respect to the extent and content of the idea draft in the guideline for the creation of the AppliedIdea draft that can be downloaded; the specific participating conditions can also be seen here (see right side bar).

Changes over the course are reserved.
