Only young researchers up to 45 years old with the title of university assistant or head of works/lecturer could participate in the competition. 76 projects competed in 14 research fields of the UPT. The judging was external and was carried out in universities members of ARUT (Romanian Alliance of Technical Universities) other than Politehnica University Timisoara.

A second round of the competition will take place in January 2018, when the projects in the non-winning places in the first stage will have the chance to be funded by economic agents interested in the respective research themes.
