Will my intellectual property rights be protected?
All applications remain the property of the applicants. It is up to you to take the necessary measures if you feel that your idea requires specific protection. Please be aware that we will evaluate hundreds of submissions, many of which may include similar ideas. We will not sign any non-disclosure agreements during the submission process.
Can we apply if our team is not from the European Union?
Yes. We accept applications from all over the world and not only from the EU. All selected applicants will have to commit to participate full time in the incubation process that will take place in the EU. The startups have to be (or will have to be) registered in the European Union.
Do I have to comply with specific rules?
Yes. The application form must be submitted in English, and by applying to the Open Education Challenge, you accept its terms and conditions.
