A huge congratulations to the JCU Brisbane Team for winning the JCU Cup in November 2022!

Every year, all four JCU campuses participate in the JCU Cup, a competition-based programme that fosters the development of fresh student ideas into outstanding initiatives. The program is for undergraduate and postgraduate students who are currently enrolled at James Cook University.  Students can apply in teams of 2-5 and after a 5-week long program of workshops and mentoring, each team will pitch their idea at the grand finale.

JCU Brisbane students, Duk Lendup Moktan, Sitora Soxibova and Chidananda Rao, who came up with the idea to reduce food waste in the hospitality industry by reusing, repacking and reselling it to those in need (i.e. students, low income households, etc.) won the inaugural JCU Cup.

On 15 March 2023, we held the JCU Cup Awards Ceremony to celebrate this massive achievement. Again, we wish these three students a massive congratulations as this is an outstanding achievement and brings great pride to JCU Brisbane.
