“Team Support Single“

Sponsors can support single teams in building their plant (1,000 € support) plus travel expenses (2,000 € in average per team). The package “Team Support Single” includes mentoring of the supported team before the competition’s final. This is the perfect opportunity to have an excellent contact to engaged students. The sponsor’s logo is presented on the plant of the supported team.


Sponsors ordering the package “Booth” can present their products and their business at the TUM DeSal Exhibition and are allowed to give contact details and product offers to the participating DeSal Challenge teams.


A sponsor taking the “Conference” package saves exclusive rights for a speaking opportunity at the conference opening address, is introduced in the conference proceedings with one full page and has also the chance to forward job and internship offers as well as information material to the participating students. A podcast on the TUM DeSal Challenge website is also included. Further benefits are listed in the sponsoring table.

“Prize for Innovation “ and “Prize for Market Relevance”

The sponsoring packages “Prize for Innovation” and “Prize for Market Relevance” save the exclusive right to hand over the awards for innovation and market relevance, respec- tively.

“Team Support Building”

The TUM DeSal Challenge teams get 1,000 € each for realizing their desalination plants. The sponsor exclusively supporting all teams in building their plants by the package “Team Support Building” has the opportunity to speak at the final event’s opening and closing ceremony.

Further benefits are listed in the sponsoring table.


The sponsor investing in a professional organized event, both TUM DeSal Challenge and Conference, by financing expenses staff saves the exclusive right to hand out the prizes for the winners ranked first, second and third.
