  • YES, if your project includes special IP which needs additional measures for ensuring confidentiality.

By selecting "NO", you confirm that no information on specific IP requiring protection is provided with your application.
By selecting "YES", the organisers of this competition will develop a specific plan to protect you and your project.

For Team Projects: The members of the Advisory Board will be asked to sign a specific NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) document to give additional proof of confidentiality. If for any reason the provided template is not extensive enough for your case, please provide a suitable NDA with your application for review and signature by the assessors. Please bear in mind that any NDA still must allow for proper assessment of your project in the frame of this competition.
