FDI Moot Regionals

Asia Pacific region teams may participate in the Global competition either:
i. directly (limited to first 4 teams to complete registration)* or
ii. via the Seoul Regional, with the top Regional teams advancing to the Globals, and the top 2 teams receiving cash prizes to support this.
Ad i) - Teams participating directly in the Globals will not be eligible for support from the Thomas Wälde Fund (TWF). Ad ii) - The top teams advancing from the Regional will be eligible for support from the TWF.

Africa region teams and South Asia region teams must participate via the respective Nairobi or New Delhi Regional, with the top Regional teams from each advancing to the Globals and eligible for support from the Thomas Wälde Fund (TWF). The African Regional host has arranged for subsidised Registration Fees for teams from Africa (€100 or US $110). The South Asia Regional host has arranged for subsidised Registration Fees for teams from India, Sri Lanka and Bhutan (€150) and for teams from Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan (€100).

Teams not among the top performers in Nairobi or New Delhi may still top up their registration fees to take part in the Globals** (no access to TWF support).

Indication of the wish to top up and participate in the Globals has to be sent to the FDI Administration within 10 days following the completion of the Regional Orals and may be subject to overall capacity restrictions at the Globals, in which case such teams will be accepted to the Globals according to the Regional ranking and first-come, first serve.

Teams from outside these regions continue to participate directly in the Globals and remain eligible for financial support subject to the usual criteria (availability of funds, HDI index, travel costs).

All registered teams (regardless of participating or advancing through a Regional) may submit full memorials to compete in the written awards. Teams advancing from the Regionals to the Global must submit full memorials.

All teams eligible to support from the TWF must complete and return the application for monetary assistance form before the (Claimant) Memorial deadline. Teams eligible for assistance who have not completed and return such application will not be considered.
