The project BiogasETC participated in the competition for the EIT Innovators Award 2015 last week. The award ceremony took place during the ‘INNOVEIT 2015’ festival in Budapest, organised by the European Institute of Technology (EIT).
BiogasETC and one other project were selected by Climate KIC out of approx. 60 Climate-KIC projects and were both nominated for the Innovators Award 2015. The two other KICs (Knowledge and Innovation Communities) – KIC InnoEnergy and EIT ICT Labs (renamed to EIT Ditigal during INNOVEIT 2015) – both nominated two projects as well for the Award.
The purpose of the EIT Awards is to promote innovation and encourage entrepreneurship in Europe. By placing the most innovative projects, project-teams and graduates in the spotlights, inspiring examples for the future are created, according to EIT.
The Innovators Award ceremony took place during the EIT Innovation Forum in Budapest on Tuesday May 6th. Congratulations to Rajai Aghabi and the InnoEnergy-KIC project Neptune, winner of the Innovators Award 2015!
