CCEMC Grand Challenge
Watch our Archived Webinar to learn more about this exciting opportunity.
On February 21, 2013 NineSigma launched an open innovation Grand Challenge, on behalf of The Climate Change and Emissions Management (CCEMC) Corporation, that will create new, carbon-based products and markets. It is expected to identify multiple technologies that will provide significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by transforming carbon from a liability into an asset. CCEMC is committing up to CAD$35 million in funding for the most innovative technology that will convert CO2 emissions into new carbon-based products and markets.
Submissions are open at www.ccemcgrandchallenge.com and technical solution providers are encouraged to register now to signify their interest.
This Grand Challenge is a multi-year event which leverages open innovation to identify solutions from around the world. It is designed to help strengthen Alberta’s economy and competitiveness in global energy markets, while offering a competitive structure for anyone to provide ideas, intellectual property (IP), technology or processes, and reap tremendous rewards. These include a significant financial award, and the opportunity to make a major impact on the future of mankind.
