Yes! The Cube will be furnished with office furniture, Power Point, WiFi, sofa-bed and curtains to be drawn in the evenings. Shower and toilet facilities are available in the vicinity.

Participants will participate in the workshop in Switzerland (OutCube) with participants from different locations during 13-15 September, 2019. The InCube competition in Singapore will take place during 26-30 September, 2019.

Yes, your trip to Switzerland for the workshop will be sponsored.

Thanks to the sponsors, all costs are covered for your participation.

The application is on a rolling basis. The results will be revealed by 20 August.

It is not binding, however once selected you will need to decide relatively quickly if you participate or not because flight tickets etc. (especially for MIT and Singapore Students) have to be booked or the slot has to be allocate to someone else. In case you are accepted we will give you a few days to sort out logistics (class conflicts etc.) – however it did not seem to be a problem last year. As soon as you decided, you will be required to sign a document that you will participate. InCube is scheduled in the beginning of the semester for MIT and ETH students– we also chose the dates based on feedback we have got from last year’s MIT and ETH participants. It should work out fine.
