DAIKIN AWARD COMPETITION
The target of CLIMA 2019 is to get a far better attention among the academics and students besides exposure to the professionals attending this congress.
As Diamond Sponsor of CLIMA 2019, Daikin introduced a Daikin Award for papers expected to be presented at the poster session during REHVA congress and addressing specific fields of interest for Daikin. If you like to be involved in the competition, please select POSTER PRESENTATION & DAIKIN AWARD COMPETITION indicating that you are willing to challenge for the Daikin Award.
As such Daikin is looking to invite for papers amongst (PhD) students based on subjects provided by Daikin. Prior to the event, papers assigned to poster presentation session will be nominated for the Daikin award and presentations will be held in a workshop organized by Daikin including a jury to select the final price winner. The presentations will be mixed with short Daikin presentations on subjects of interest to the (academic) stakeholders.
The selection criteria will be an outcome from discussion among ERC and TIC to give guidance to future Daikin developments.
A special team of reviewers (experts in Daikin and also external reviewers) will make a selection of 8 nominated papers. The 8 nominations will be requested to present the paper (15 minutes each) for a special jury during CLIMA 2019. The jury will select the final winner.
The jury is composed by highly experienced specialists.
The winner of the Daikin Award will get a free course at the Daikin Academy in Belgium, including full coverage of travel expenses. The course at the Academy can focus on Managerial skills, Daikin Technologies, Negotiation skills etc.
