What is the Universal Design Grand Challenge?

The Universal Design Grand Challenge (UDGC) is a student competition that promotes and awards excellence in student projects that feature solutions that work for everyone. The UDGC invites third level students in their final two years of study, post grads and recent graduates to enter their best student project.

9 finalists from colleges around Ireland will present their designs to a panel of industry experts as part of the National Final.  Winners will be announced in 3 categories:

  • Build Environment,
  • Information and Communication,
  • Products and Services.

In addition, there will also be a Peoples’ Choice Winner and an Enterprise Ireland* “Universal Design Commercialisation Award”.

All finalists will benefit from expert pitch training as part of the competition process. The winner of each category will receive a cash prize and the coveted Universal Design Grand Challenge perpetual trophy for that category.
