Is it enough to register just 1 element in order to register a team?
No, all elements have to be registered in the website but just one member forms the team that the other elements will have to join.
Is the position of the team in the registration ranking determined when the first element of the team registers himself?
No, the team is only complete with the 4 elements, therefore the team is not considered registered until the last element completes the registration. It’s important to remember that the registration is only valid when a motivation letter is submitted.
Can I apply for both categories, Case Study and Team Design ?
Yes, but the team should show preference for one of them. The team will then participate in that category, unless that category is full. In that case, the team will then participate in the other category.
I don’t have a team. Can I register myself?
Yes, but you need to mention in your Motivation Letter that you don’t have a team. If more participants don’t have a team, they will form one. However, priority is given to already formed teams.
Is it necessary to bring food?
The organization provides lunch, dinner and breakfast for all participants. However, we advise you to bring some snacks to eat during the competition.
Is there any bathrooms?
Yes, the competition will be at the Building VII, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, therefore the participants will have access to a bathroom all the time.
Do I have to pay if I’m late?
No, when an element of a team is late, the team must inform the organization. The competition will begin without that element.
Do I have to pay to participate in EBEC Almada?
No, the participants only have to pay a deposit of 5€ each one (20€ per team) which will be interely refunded in the end of the competition in case the team doesn’t cause any damages, both in the material used and the local where the competition takes place.
