General Guidelines

Inova will require participants in teams, of at least 3 or maximum 4, to compete with their peers with the aim of solving mind boggling problems as being put forward by leading pioneers.

Participants will be given general guidance on how to go about the challenge on day 1. The following day they will be given their respective design briefs. Teams will solve the problem to the best of their abilities in a design sprint. After completing the design sprint, students will informally present their workings to a panel consisting of design specialists and representatives of Index.

Award Scheme

All winners will be awarded shields. Team members of a delegate performing the best in each specific task category will be awarded certificates. Every other aspiring participant will receive a certificate to serve as recognition for their efforts in being part of Inova.
