Dear @paperprovince_magnus, what an interesting competition! Hopefully, you’ll get many great, new and innovative ideas.

I support Magnus’ desire to share the information, and encourage all @RDI2CluB team members to do so!


Hi @paperprovince_magnus,
Are there any criteria to participate? We have students at our faculty (Inland Norway University of
Applied Sciences, Faculty of Applied Ecology, Agricultural Sciences and Biotechnology) who are studying for a bachelor of forestry. They will have innovation and entrepreneurship in their studies this spring, and this might be of interest to them.

Have a look at the homepage and you will find the criteria when it opens in six days. Students are one of the main target groups for this challenge so it would be great if they would participate!
