Information on the Innovation Challenge

Individual Challenge (Phase 1): Entrants from U21 network universities will respond individually, via a 3-minute video, to a challenge question set by PwC (as in previous iterations of the competition).  

Team Challenge (Phase 2): Successful finalists from Phase 1 (put forward by their universities to U21) will participate in a Team Challenge where they will respond to a further challenge question in assigned groups. These groups will then ‘pitch’ their response to a panel.
