The main location will be the Machinekamer in the Thermotechnical Institute on Campus Arenberg, and the other locations that will be used during the day are closeby in the Arenberg Campus.

If you don’t know about data science, don’t worry – learning is a huge part of the D4GC and Emergent experience. We will have workshops on all subjects and mentors to answer questions and help teams. We will do our best to find team members that are most complementary to your skills. The challenge and prize categories are designed to include multiple aspects so everyone can contribute and have fun!

Of course! Just let us know via the registration form the same email addresses that your teammates used to sign up and we’ll make sure you are teamed up together. 

Our event will be held in English, as such all information will be announced in English and participants will be expected to pitch their solutions in English.

You will need to pitch your ideas to corporate judges. We would recommend a smart casual attire!

No, any student can participate. But you need to be a student at a higher education institution to participate (studying a bachelors, masters, PhD, etc). You will also need to come to Leuven to participate on the challenge day itself.

Just a laptop, access to campus wifi, and excitement for the challenge will be sufficient 🙂

Food is provided throughout the whole day for participants!

Participating is free!

The topic of the challenge will be introduced on the day of the challenge itself. Working on the problem before the day is not possible.

Feel free to reach out to us through our socials or use the email provided in the Contact page!

So you all have to register individually. If you want to particpate with other people you can give up the email address(es) of either 1 or 3 other participants. This way we will never have to match a group of 3 with 1 other individual so it won’t be too awkward ;). So either you have formed a group of 4 or 2 or you registered alone. Pairs will be paired with either another pair or 2 indiviuals. An individual will thus be paired with either 3 other individuals or 1 individual and a pair.

We will do the matching based on your background information. We will look at your industry preferences, your study phase & your skill set.
