The #waterevolution Innovate H20 initiative is open to innovators advancing circular economy projects focussed on ‘maximising the value of water’.

Seeds & Chips, the world’s leading food innovation summit held annually in Milan, which we are media partners with in 2019, in partnership with the CAP Foundation, are looking for ‘members of the scientific community, aspiring entrepreneurs, university spin-offs, and startups’ to apply for the chance to join a six month incubator at the CAP Holding research center in Milan. As well as ‘strategic support and mentoring from Seeds&Chips and its ecosystem’ those selected will receive ‘technical support with CAP Foundation experts who, as an industrial partner, will make available the technical skills related to their core business’.

“Water is the most shared and important resource in all supply chains. On the other hand, wastewater is the largest untapped resource in the world. Therefore, the circular revolution is a natural starting point for sector transformation. With this in mind, CAP Foundation promotes circular economy projects with particular interest in maximising the value of water, improving the governance thereof and promoting investments in the sector. Our Call for Ideas, based on the larger theme of circular economy, aims to encourage forward-looking innovators making a positive difference and providing tangible and sustainable solutions,” the Call for Ideas states.

If you have a solution, apply by 17 February.
