Student innovation supported by Széchenyi Duo competition

Széchenyi István University is committed to supporting student innovation: the institution strives to embrace all entrepreneurial ideas and research with business potential. One of the successful forms of this is the Széchenyi Duo competition, based on cooperation between lecturers and students, the last round of which ended in January.

Within the framework of the National Research, Development and Innovation Office’s (NRDI) University Innovation Ecosystem project, three award-winning teams created prototypes in connection with carbon fibre composites, orthopedic braces and creative clothing, the latter of which also launched a business called Anky Pery.

The Széchenyi Duo competition has a long history at the University of Győr. Full-time or correspondence students from the institution can apply for the competition in teams of up to four people – the only condition being that entries must, as a minimum, consist of one student and one instructor working in pairs, so the application is jointly submitted. The best three projects received will be rewarded with cash prizes to be spent on further developing the idea. You can enter with any innovative idea or concept that results in a mock-up, a model, or a prototype.

This year, in a departure from the normal, the closing event of the competition was held online, in which the three winning teams, their instructors, and Dr Tibor Dőry, head of the Management Campus Competence Centre, took part.
