Call for ideas: Urban food from residual heat

In collaboration with Vinnova and a Swedish project consortium, Climate-KIC is facilitating a ground breaking Open Innovation process to come up with a method of utilizing waste residual heat from industry in urban food production. The competition serves as a crowdsourcing mechanism for four Swedish municipalities: Malmö, Lund, Oskarshamn and Bjuv; who are looking for solution proposals of all kinds, relating to all aspects of the project.

The competition has been given significant backing by Vinnova, the Swedish Innovation Agency, who as well as providing the resources to get this project off the ground has also provided two million SEK in prize money for successful proposals. The competition open for anyone to participate in: Industry, businesses, professionals, university start-ups, projects and spin-offs, researchers and PhD alike.
