Together with senior European designer mentors, a two-month work deepening internship has been launched. Both of the two regions have started final stage internships.
Four candidates from Europe region have joined SAIC DESIGN ADVANCED LONDON to work with design tutors. Together they are going to finish the final work in 2 months time.
7th August 2020
After three weeks of work deepening internship, the European finals were ushered in for the first time via Global Jury Linked Cloud Video Conference.
Through three weeks of updates, candidates presented their works to the SDC Global Judge Committee for the first time through an online review conference.
Three students at the European Forward Design Center
A student has video access via cloud internship and far from the Shanghai SAIC Design Headquarters in China. The expert jury met for the first time. Three candidates in the studio and one candidate through video conference connected with the Judge Experts from the China side.
Four students connected via video and within the three-minute time limit, completed the first presentation of the progress of the entries through video conference. All the candidates finished their presentations within the three-minute limit.
I learned that the works of the Chinese contestants are excellent. The European region also tightened during the three-week internship.
The shortlisted works have shown great progress and improvement, having heard the works from China region are super fresh and exciting. Europe region has put a lot of energy
in the past three weeks to make massive improvements on the works.
The first global joint judging in Europe
Shao Jingfeng ,Vice President and Global Design Director of SAIC MOTOR Technical Center, was deeply attracted by the brains and thinking of the European works, and greatly appreciated the improvement of design optimisation.

One week later the global competition will usher in the first joint cloud review meeting.
Which division's work will be best? Stay tuned!
