Hop into the Metaverse

We are pleased to announce the opening of the tenth annual Dassault Systèmes Project of the Year contest beginning May 2.

Sponsored by the 3DEXPERIENCE Edu team, the competition is an invitation to students worldwide to submit projects they’ve created using Dassault Systèmes solutions. This is a great opportunity to showcase their design skills and offer recognition for their new, innovative ideas. The theme for 2022 Project of the year is the Metaverse and we encourage you to hop into the virtual universe with us! Watch our video to learn more.

Great ideas win great prizes

In 2021, The Project of the Year received over 400 submissions from 38 countries, with 16 winning entries. Some of the winning projects included a virtual twin of a quadruped robot, a magnetic levitation windmill and a solar assisted smart hat. Watch this video to see more!
