€95K urban public transport energy efficiency competition launched in Berlin
Date:7/3/2014

BERLIN Climate-KIC, the EU's main climate innovation initiative, and Berlin's public transport company BVG have teamed up for the Open Innovation Slam 2014 competition.

This year, Climate-KIC's interactive Europe-wide idea and start-up Open Innovation Slam contest will focus on the smartest ideas and solutions to save energy and reduce the carbon footprint of urban public transport systems.

Berlin's transport sector accounts for about 4.8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), roughly a quarter of the city's CO2 emissions. The most innovative and powerful idea to make this more energy efficient, will win a place in one of the European locations of the Climate-KIC Accelerator the world's largest climate-specific start-up accelerator worth up to 95.000.

Innovative ideas can be submitted and will be presented for comments on http://www.openinnovationslam.org by 14 September 2014. After this date internet users can vote to decide which ideas move on to the final.

Climate-KIC Venture Weekend

Climate-KIC and BVG invite start-ups, researchers, practitioners and students to submit their ideas to make urban public transport more energy efficient, develop them further with professional support and win a place in the Climate-KIC Accelerator.

After the initial online selection, a jury of experts will select the 10 best teams for Climate-KIC's Venture Weekend in Berlin from 17 until 19 October 2014.

The finalists will receive three days of expert mentoring, business coaching and networking with experts to further develop their ideas.

On the last day, the teams will pitch their business ideas to a panel of experts and the overall winner will be announced.
