AE Global Innovation Award is a recognized prize of innovation in energy areas and promotes the spirit of technological endeavor and entrepreneurship to strengthen our prosperous and sustainable future.
The contest offers a platform for young scholars and entrepreneurs to bring forth their ideas into fruition. It is initiated by leaders from both academia and industry, with a focus of promoting energy- and environment-related research and technology into commercialization.
The energy sector is a critical pillar of the world economy and has undergone rapid growth in recent years. Technology innovation in the energy area continuously spurs the economy and supports a clean future. International collaboration provides the foundation for disruptive ideas and projects, which have tremendous potentials for commercialization to bring values to the society.
The competition is open to all young scholars/innovators/entrepreneurs in the energy- and environment- technology sectors. Participants are expected to form a team and develop a novel application project. Teams may submit more than one project, but they are to be submitted as separate projects for individual assessment.
