The EBEC is a 3-level, team-based competition, on 2 categories -Team Design and Case Study.
Team Design: this category consists of solving a given task in teams, within a limited time and a limited availability of materials. The desired outcome is a device that has to meet certain criteria defined in advance.
Case Study: this category consists of providing a solution to a technical or a management problem within a limited time with no actual construction of any device or assembling of materials. In the end, the teams present the outcomes they came up with.
Both categories are based on interdisciplinary tasks developed for students of technology.
The winning teams from the local rounds of Almada, Aveiro, Coimbra, Lisbon and Porto progress to the EBEC Portugal.
Then, winners progress to final round, which is taking place this year in Turin and will compete with the winners of all other National/Regional Rounds.
