The competition tasks include practical work only. However, theoretical knowledge will be necessary in order to complete the tasks correctly. The time allocated to the project will be around 21 hours, which will be divided between seven tasks.

After the event, competitors will receive individual face-to-face feedback from the judges. 

The panel of judges will include specialists within their field, led by a top expert.
