The fifth edition of the largest European Universities & Graduate Schools Championship will take place in Luxembourg City on May 22nd2019 at the European Convention Center. Supported by the European Commission since its first edition, held in 2015, the Morpheus Cup has attracted hundreds of students from campuses all over Europe, with the ambition of tackling the upcoming talent shortage. 

After being held in Paris in 2018, the European event returns to the Grand Duchy, where the competition began. The event already attracted more than 200 campuses and awarded many of them including Warsaw School of Economics, Mannheim Business School, HEC Paris, Autonomous University of Barcelona, University of Oxford, as well as students from Luxembourg, Sweden, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and many other countries.  

The championship is divided into two sections, the Morpheus Prize, a remote call for projects, and the Morpheus Day, a full day of live challenges: students can decide whether they participate in one or both parts. This championship is a great opportunity for students to challenge themselves, showcase their skills in front of influential personalities and industry experts at European scale; gaining self confidence and credibility for their idea.   

The Morpheus Prize requires participants to submit a project or startup idea online by April 7th.  

Finalists will have the opportunity to pitch in front of an international jury composed of renowned personalities in tech, digital, business and sciences. Past editions welcomed jury members from Google Lunar XPrize, WarnerBros, Accenture, European Investment Fund, FC Barcelona, ESA, Canal+, Novak Djokovic Foundation, Alibaba, Forbes France, etc. This year's projects will focus on the notably growing tech fields, including Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Customer Experience, FinTech, HealthTech, E-commerce, HRTech, Augmented and Virtual Reality.  

The Morpheus Day invites students to participate in a full day of themed challenges and to solve business questions designed by international employers and brands on specific topics, including: Technology & ICT, Business, Marketing, Science & Engineering, Creative industries.
