In order to sign up a team in the faculty competition, its leader will have to send, by Monday, November 22, 2021, an email to the mentor officially announced at the faculty level, stating the name of the team (which should also reflect the membership to the faculty), the names of the team members, the level of education and specialization, but also a brief motivation for the intention to participate in CIVISthon UB (maximum one A4 page or a PPT slide).
Subsequently, between November 22-25, 2021, the mentors proposed at the level of the 19 faculties of the University of Bucharest will select the teams that will participate in the final of the event. The work activity, the presentation of the final projects and the awarding of the winners will take place between December 6-10, 2021.
In order to convince the jury, the winning projects must offer creative, efficient and realistic solutions, correctly describe the social, cultural and economic context in which the identified issues are found, demonstrate knowledge on the CIVIS consortium, its areas of interest, projects and directions, and be presented in a persuasive and professional manner.
More details on CIVISthon UB 2021, including the full regulations and timetable, can be found in the document available here. The contact details of the mentors from the 19 faculties can be consulted on their websites, available here.
