During the workshop, students from various disciplines and universities were grouped in 4-5 members per team and were assigned a specific TGL challenge statement. Through the arranged company visits and technical workshops, teams were exposed to companies and products information which would be useful in their proposal preparation for the TGL Industry Challenge. At the end of the workshop, teams had the opportunity to present their ideas and solutions to the industry judges.
