Promoting creative and innovative thinking is essential in modern times. Through our competition we would like to draw the attention of companies from different industries to talented students. We would like to offer the participants the opportunity to publish themselves and their work worldwide in the form of publications at the biggest companies. We want to give young talents the opportunity to present their work worldwide, build a network and create new opportunities in the business world.
Please read through this guideline carefully.
01 THEME - NEW MATERIAL
We invite you to be part of this exciting opportunity to innovate for the next generation of materials for the future automotive + transportation industry. The automotive + transportation industry is ever changing, but now at a faster rate than ever imagined in its history.
Electric car sharing, commercial spacecraft, and interactive/ smart vehicles are just a few examples of the areas where young design talents are needed. We are looking for innovative new material concepts that could radically change what our cars, trains, airplanes or even spaceships look and feel like in the future and beyond.
This competition will focus on the three most significant design directions for the future:
Sustainability, Biomimicryand Smart Material Design.
Therefore, your new and innovative material could be about:
1. How to produce the new material itself, or
2. Your vision of a new application for your material.
If you think that your material concept is a bit far out or looks too much like science fiction, rest assured that we are very interested to hear about it.
02 HOST - KHALIL Design

Premiere of our new Trend- & Materialbox
2020 - a year that brought a lot of changes. The COVID crisis has shaken the whole world and revealed the effects of a global pandemic on all areas of life. We also had to enhance our way of operation and take the design process to the next level. Our international set up and network allows us to obtain information across industry hotspots worldwide.
One topic that has probably changed the most by the pandemic is the restriction to move within the usual framework nationally or internationally. What to do if travel and trade fairs are to be cancelled, further on?
With our trend and material box, we have created a product. A box that delivers the trade fair straight to your home. A platform for new materials, concepts and trends, selected by us on latest topics and innovatively prepa-red for your benefit.
ROOM FOR ONE
In the first, exclusive edition, we look at the impact Covid-19 will have on tomorrow‘s design. Out of this, we derive new design strategies and develop materials for you, with answers to questions such as: ‘how can we change our consumer behaviour sustainably?’ or ‘how can space be shared, and protection and security guaranteed at the same time?’
We believe that design plays a crucial role in solving these problems and the deliberate use of innovative materials will accelerate this necessary development.
