Enzen's first-ever worldwide open innovation competition concludes in the UK on 7th May, when finalists receive their prizes at a VIP dinner.
The Innovation for Sustainable Development was launched in June 2018. Its purpose is to seek ideas and solutions from the best minds around the world to address the growing challenges our planet faces in energy, water and the environment.
A panel of esteemed industry experts chose the four winning teams ahead of 23 other rivals during a two-day semi-final stage in Bengaluru, India, back in February. Now they will reunite in Birmingham, UK, on 7th May to learn whether they've placed first, second or third.
The competition attracted 690 entries from researchers, academics, students and entrepreneurs, each one submitting ideas themed around our ‘Transformation into a Sustainable Environment’. Enzen experts will mentor the winners, incubating their ideas at our research facilities in India or the UK, assessing the best way to take these models to market.
