Participants aged 18 and above can apply, either as a team or as an individual and the ideas competition is being pitched internationally. Start-ups, students and developers are welcome to submit their projects.
Further information on the categories, partners and ideas will be published by Porsche in the coming weeks on its ‘Next Level German Engineering’ technology blog and on the Porsche Newsroom.
