The application window for the 2021 EAGE Minus CO2 Challenge has just been opened. The prestigious challenge, in which teams from around the globe compete on a project related to energy transition and climate change, is accepting submissions up to 30 September. Students have the chance to win the grand prize of €2000,– so get your team together today.
Offshore Canada focus of 2021 Challenge
This year’s assignment will take the Minus CO2 Challenge to the Western Hemisphere, as we’re focussing on the carbon sequestration potential of the Scotian Margin, Nova Scotia, Canada. Subsurface carbon sequestration is one of the key ways how (prospective) geoscientists and engineers can contribute to making the energy transition a reality, so we’re excited to see student teams take a shot at this year’s challenge!
How to apply
Student teams interested in participating are asked to do so by submitting a motivational letter and declaration of academic integrity by 30 September. The motivational letter should set out the team’s vision on why the energy transition is important and how geoscientists and engineers can make the energy transition a reality.
What’s at stake
Participating teams have a chance to win to €2000,–, in addition to international visibility through EAGE’s media and the opportunity to connect to leading experts from the community working on these challenges.
