The IPICA consortium is happy to announce that the Idea Challenge was a great success. From a total of 14 eligible submissions of amazing business ideas in the field of renewable energies, energy efficiency and social business, 6 outstanding ideas were selected as winners of the IPICA Idea Challenge. Those are initiatives covering a wide range of topics such as marine energy capture, battery regeneration, an app and web based service to improve energy efficiency of households, a solution on increasing the thermal efficiency of the internal combustion engine, and a service providing information and educational aspects on energy saving.
The winners are awarded with a full scale mentoring programme throughout the upcoming year providing expert input and support from experienced entrepreneurs and professionals with market knowledge, networks and IP management expertise. This programme aims at developing those ideas further and get them ready for their respective markets. We will keep you posted throughout the upcoming months on their progress and success stories, so make sure to check back frequently for news and updates!
