Do you have any ideas on how to make the world more sustainable? In the Natural Scientists' innovation competition ThinkTank 2030, students and doctoral students compete to find sustainable solutions for the future.
September 30 was the last day to submit competition entries for sustainable solutions, for the benefit of people, the environment and the climate.
The three best competition entries win a prize sum:
- First prize is SEK 15,000
- Second prize is SEK 10,000
- The third prize is SEK 5,000
The winner also receives 10 hours of individual business support from Naturvetarna's partner Verto. It can be business development of the idea, development of a business plan, business acumen, financing, leadership or own personal career development.
What happens now?
September 30 was the last day to send in competition entries via email or as a short film published on Facebook or Instagram.
The main proposals go on to a second round, where a more in-depth presentation of the competition entries takes place before a jury. The jury then selects the three winning entries.
The three winning competition entries will be announced at the award ceremony, which will be broadcast live on October 27 at 17.00 in our digital channels.
- Dilsa Demirbag-Sten, Secretary General and founder of Berättarministeriet
- Elisabeth Ericson, geoscientist and entrepreneur in marketing communication
- Kenneth Alness, agronomist and founder of Thermoseed
- Daniel Nord, chairman of the Naturvetarna Student Council
