The EuroEAP Society annually issues a call for the Society Challenge. The challenge is an open competition where teams of talented researchers can showcase a project of their choice and compete with colleagues in academia and industry. The final aim of the Challenge is to captivate and inspire the imagination of experts and the public alike with the possibilities that EAP technologies empower. The announcement of the winning team takes place at the EuroEAP Conference held in the subsequent year, where the projects should be exhibited.
Each team should build and test an EAP based new material/device/system, presenting a demo that performs a given task or function of their choice. As the Challenge has no predefined goals, participants will have the opportunity to showcase their pet projects, which may be fun or interesting, not necessarily of profound scientific importance. There are no restrictions on the type of EAP technologies to be utilized or the required functionality/application to be obtained.
