As part of its annual academic investment program, the Ohio State Energy Partners (OSEP) will fund the Smart Campus Challenge, a venture capitalist-style student sustainability competition in February 2019.
Student teams who advance through an initial proposal process will have the opportunity to pitch campus sustainability projects to a committee of Ohio State faculty, staff, alumni and ENGIE program managers for the chance to get their dream project funded.
“Each of us plays an essential role in the innovation of tomorrow,” said Jean-Pierre Clamadieu. “By working together, we can accelerate innovation and the implementation of projects with widespread impact. We look forward to engaging with students on their ideas to imagine new possibilities and drive solutions to make Ohio State’s campus a model for others to follow.”
The student sustainability competition aims to connect student talents to sustainability innovation by funding projects that enhance its campus’ resource efficiency and environmental performance.
More information is available on the OSEP website. Please share this opportunity with your students.
Proposals for the competition are due Dec. 7, 2018. All proposals must be submitted to the OSEP website. Click here for more information on the Smart Campus Challenge and to submit a proposal.
