Elsevier Foundation contest offers €75K in prizes for innovative solutions to challenges in developing countries

This year, the Elsevier Foundation is running this contest. They are seeking applications for projects that use green and sustainable chemistry solutions to tackle some of the developing world’s greatest challenges whether in water, sanitation or energy. The challenge forms an important part of the Elsevier Foundation’s newly established programs and partnerships to ensure healthy lives, reduce inequality, achieve gender equality and bridge the North-South divide in scientific collaboration.

The top five contestants will be invited to pitch their ideas at the second Green and Sustainable Chemistry Conference, to be held in Berlin in May 2017. The first prize challenge winner will receive a €50,000 award, and the second prize winner a €25,000 award. Proposals for the Elsevier Foundation Green and Sustainable Chemistry Challenge will be accepted through September 15.
