The CINTECX Annual Challenge is an idea project competition in the field of Industrial Technologies funded by CINTECX (The Research Center on Industrial technologies, Energy, and Industrial Processes in Vigo, SPAIN).

Every year, CINTECX publishes the theme for the Challenge and seeks applications from CINTECX Research Groups representing collaborative projects. It also allocates a lump sum for funding the implementation of the winning idea. The Challenge runs for 1 natural year, allocating the final 2 months for dissemination. An important component of the challenge is to reach the general audience; therefore, the challenge results shall be presented at the annual event named “Singular Science” promoted by the local authorities. Additional funding will be allocated for the dissemination activities of the Challenge results following CINTECX and UVigo policies.
