They are supposed to write a feasibility analysis (business plan) of such projects in the setting of a capstone master thesis. During the process, participants will be coached by entrepreneurs and experts. The jury of the project will be composed of a representative of each partner institution.

If they intend to create a company in relation to their project, they will be offered the possibility to be incubated into one of the incubators associated with partner institutions.
