All teams that want to take part in the competition have to submit their proposal as well as their 1 minute video until the 31st March 2018.

The teams are totally free with respect to the experiment that they propose as long as it does not rise any safety concerns. The technical feasibility will be an important criterion for the selection of the winners. We know that judging what is feasible and what is not may be difficult for the teams. Refer to this support document for information.

A large number of experienced scientists have offered to help the teams. The list of names, countries and e-mail addresses can be found below:
