This really is an awesome and unique opportunity to get your innovation on the path to success and contributing to a more sustainable world. I have included a video to give you a feel for the process and the contest:

This year in Dublin there is also a competition for ‘Early Career Researchers.’ Run along the same lines as the innovator’s contest, the criteria for the contest submission are as follows:

Globe Forum in association with IRCSET, Dublin City Council, Accenture, Enterprise Ireland, IDA, SFI, UCD/Trinity Innovation Alliance, SEAI and other university partners seeks early career researchers to highlight on-going individual or team-based research that has implications for science, sustainability and society. Proposals for this competition should reflect the major themes of the conference which seeks to promote innovation and sustainability in an Irish context. Additionally, proposals are expected to emphasize the importance of cross-disciplinary, innovative research and the unique collaborative and creative nature of Irish researchers.

So if you have an awesome sustainable innovation or think that your research will change the world; Click HERE to Apply!
