    Brief introduction to the competition

     The International Collegiate Design and Innovation Competition (Beijing 2016) will be held to model an international student competition with Beijing characteristics, to broaden competitors’ horizons, and to promote intercultural communication. The competition will be held in the first half of July 2016 in Beijing.

     The participants will be required to form groups. Participants will not be allowed to prepare any work before the competition begins, since the competition adopts an approach of assigning the project live at the onset of the competition. Competitors will be asked to come up with a solution in a short duration, and present it to be evaluated. The Committee will hold a series of activities including academic forums and study tours to enhance communication among students from different countries.

     In order to promote friendship and understanding among the students, the committee will plan visits to places of historical interest and scenic beauty in Beijing. In addition some recreational activities will be organized as well.
