Description

Do you want to see innovative solutions for how to use residual heat from industrial sites in urban food production? Then join us for an exciting pitch event on 2 October in Alnarp, Sweden!

In March Climate-KIC and the project partners distributed an open invitation for innovators across the world to propose full- and part-solutions capable of solving, improving, and enhancing the many aspects of this ambitious project. Three months and 46 submissions (from 21 different countries) later, the competition has narrowed down the pool to 28.

On 2 October, the remaining 28 solution providers will congregate in Alnarp, Sweden to participate in a pitch and workshop event with the objective of creating multiple consortia capable of meeting our grand vision. The competition will be introduced, the participating cities will outline their needs from the project as well as their visions, and solution providers will pitch their solutions.

After lunch, there will also be two hour pitch and meet session where solution providers, city representatives, and other members of the competition team will discuss and co-develop ideas for the creation of exciting consortia and ambitious project plans.

Successful consortia will process into the second stage of the competition, starting in mid-October 2017. From then, a further selection will be made to the third stage of the competition and finally a winning proposal will be heard in September 2018.

Climate-KIC Nordic, SLU, e.on, Veolia Norden, Kraftringen, ICA Fastigheter,Malmö stad, Lund Municipality, Oskarshamns kommun, Bjuvs kommun,Region Skåne, Sustainable Business Hub, Länsstyrelsen Skåne and a number of other partners have received funding from the Swedish Innovation Agency, Vinnova to run this open innovation initiative.
