Siemens Foundation seeking technical solutions for Development

The Siemens Foundation has announced the ‘empowering people.Award’ – a new worldwide international competition to seek appropriate technical solutions for developmental activities. It aims to directly bring together low tech innovations for basic supply problems in developing countries. It also intends to build up a database of inventions that is accessible to actors in developmental cooperation at a later date.

Following are the categories under which the ideas can be submitted:

  • Water & Waste Water
  • Energy
  • Food & Agriculture
  • Waste Management & Recycling
  • Housing & Construction
  • Healthcare
  • Information & Communication Technology.

The Foundation has a sum of approximately 200,000 EUR which includes 50,000 EUR as the first prize, 30,000 EUR as the second prize and 20,000 EUR as the third prize. Besides, 20 runners up will receive 5,000 EUR each.

All nominees will be requested to attend the Awards Ceremony in summer 2013 where they will have the opportunity to meet representatives from the world of politics, science, media and technology.

Applications have to be submitted online. The deadline to submit applications is 31 December 2012. For more information, visit this link
