ScottishPower is supporting the Young Pioneers category at this year’s Global Game Changers (GGC) – which was officially launched today.

Biotech entrepreneur, James McIlroy, won this category in 2017. His company, EnteroBiotix, is working to prevent and treat diseases by unlocking the potential of the body’s own micro-organisms by using healthy donor bacteria to fight infection. And with the help of ScottishPower, we are looking for the innovator who will now follow in his footsteps

The category is open to ‘any person or group of individuals (aged 18 – 25 years old) who are shaking things up, with an idea, product or invention that is making an impact, achieving commercial success, changing how things are done, or is being harnessed by academia, business or industry’.

Apply now.

We are delighted to be partnering with Newsquest International again this year on GGC, one of the world’s first cross-sector awards platform that recognises innovation for the UN Global Goals.

The keynote speaker for the 12 September event at Glasgow’s Grand Central hotel, is UN SDG advocate, Marc Buckley. A member of the Expert Network for the World Economic Forum, Marc also works with the World Food Programme, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and is the Germany and Austria Country Coordinator for Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project.
