Young spatial designers from the whole of (geographic) Europe can participate in Europan. Europan stimulates multidisciplinary mixed teams. The knowledge and expertise of professional practitioners from differing design disciplines can be combined: architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, visual arts, civil engineering, etc.
All participants, regardless of their discipline, must be under the age of forty on the final submission date.
In each competition round designers can register for several sites, but these sites must be located in different countries.
