The main criteria for selection where: at least two faculties from 4TU.Bouw are involved, the 'imaginative' nature of the reserach proposal, and the promise of a tangible result (e.g. prototype), within the project term of one year. The program has been set up as a 'seed money' approach; relatively small funding amount, short time-frame, set for 'proof of concept', or 'proof of failure'.
