The 2nd School of Engineering Sustainability Challenge (E×S Challenge)


The School of Engineering at Tokyo Tech holds a problem-solving practical idea contest to realize a sustainable society. You are welcome to participate in the idea contest as an individual or a member of a team with the latest seeds from your laboratory, or ideas that might fit better for new businesses than for academic publication. Any groups or individuals represented by a student, a postdoc, or an assistant professor at the School of Engineering of Tokyo Tech can participate. Associate professors and professors cannot be representatives, but they are welcome to join as members. Tokyo Tech students at other schools, students at other universities, or even workers in companies are welcome as members, but cannot be the representatives. Teams and individuals who participated last year are also welcome to participate.
