COVID-19 Innovation Challenge Submission Criteria
When crafting your proposal, you don’t have to follow a template but you have to be able to clearly answer the specific questions our competition judges will be considering. For more specific information on the requirements of each type of Challenge please visit the Challenge homepage. Your completed application will consist of the proposal and your video of up to 90 seconds describing your proposal and how it will meet the Challenge. Our judges will evaluate your project on three key criteria:
A group of three to five judges— KAUST faculty and administrators, The KAUST School and KAUST Community representatives—will judge each team. Judges complete two evaluations, one based on your written proposal and a second based on your video presentation. We will compile and average the scores from each judging team. Written evaluations count towards 45% of your overall score and your video submission will count for 55% of the overall team score.
