Calling all Student Innovators. Do you have an idea that changes student life? Or even the world? How would you use technology or innovation to drive positive change at university today and in the world tomorrow?

Red Bull gives wings to student innovators to drive positive change through tech solutions. The best ideas will be invited to the Global Workshop.

Finalist teams will have a chance to bring their ideas to life, guided by mentors from relevant innovation spaces and access to thought leaders from around the world. After three adventurous days packed with networking and inspiration, they will be ready to ace a Final Pitch to the experts.

You don’t have to be an entrepreneur or an innovator to join us – everyone is invited to the brainstorm. Take part in a Red Bull Basement satellite event near you to develop new ideas, find team members, and get inspired.



Brainstorm your idea and describe it in a max 60-second video. Then upload the video and your application on this website. This is not a film-making competition: your idea is what matters. Remember, the public will vote on it, so try your best. A team can consist of one or two people. Make sure that everyone is at least 18, a university student, and able to speak English.



Fellow students – and the public – will have a three-day window to view the eligible videos and vote. Their top picks will advance to the Selection phase, so spread the word and gather support from your community.



A panel of local judges will select the best single idea to represent their country. The selection criteria will be based on feasibility, impact, and creativity.



This phase is all about bringing your idea to life! Each Finalist team, one from each participating country, will get access to a workspace, 1on1 sessions with international mentors, and access to a global network of innovators.

Global Workshop


This is it: Three immersive days with workshops, mentorship sessions, and much more, culminating in the big Final Pitch and announcement of the “Best Idea of 2020.” Business relationships and networking connections will be forged with access to some of the world’s most visionary thought leaders. After previous Global Workshops in Berlin and Toronto, this year’s edition comes to a new city of innovation – stay tuned…

Final Pitch

On the last day, each team will present their Final Pitch to the global judges. One idea will be declared “Best Idea of 2020,” while others receive category recognition. Everyone goes home with sharpened skills, fresh insights, and an expanded network. Where will their ideas take them next?
