The thought-provoking collection gives a platform to the views and suggestions of tomorrow's competition scholars and experts.

What is the Student challenge

We invited university students to watch the Competition Policy Contributing to the European Green Deal conference of 4 February 2021; pick one of the topics discussed; and send us short abstracts that would answer this question: “What would you have talked about if you had been a speaker?”

You can watch the conference here and read the Student Challenge rules here.

Who won the Student challenge

We shortlisted the 12 best abstracts and a popular vote picked the four winners. Over 2,500 people took part in the vote. Below are the four students who won the Student Challenge:
