Invitation to OSCAR&PAUL Battleweeks 2021 /Apply by July 16th/

Dear CEMSies, 

We are very happy to inform you about the second edition of the OSCAR&PAUL Battleweeks!

 It is a 4-week virtual business hackathon where participants will collaborate and compete with 100 other international visionaries to shape the skincare of tomorrow. The event is accompanied by intensive sparring sessions and inspirational side events. Naturally, it’s not a full-time event – participants are working independently in their teams and only convene for the kick-off and two pitching rounds.  

 The first Battleweeks last year had wonderful outcomes! We met 135 talents from 45 countries who came up with brilliant results after intense 4-week work, some of which are now actually being considered for our products pipeline! Here is a testimonial from one of the participants:

 “Participating in the Beiersdorf Battleweeks last year was a really inspiring, educational experience…I learned a lot about the industry, met a lot of wonderful people, made new close friends and discovered what an amazingly warm team Beiersdorf has.”
