The 5th edition of Cleantech Camp has already selected the 15 projects that, until next November, will follow our training program. The business ideas have been chosen from among the more than 70 proposals that submitted their candidacy in January, of which 50 have already passed the first selection phase. The finalist start-ups will aspire to obtain rewards that can reach a valuation of 150,000 euros, among the items destined to the acceleration of the companies and the possible financing of up to four pilot tests.
The selected projects come mainly from Spain, but they also originate from countries such as Portugal, France, or the United Kingdom. Among the solutions they address, those related to mobility stand out, followed by those related to biogas and hydrogen, Smart cities, Smart grids, Internet of things and AI, energy efficiency, and energy storage.
We postponed the celebration of Cleantech Camp last March with the aim that it could be resumed from September, with the final selection of projects. Once chosen, the 2020 edition will be held remotely and not in person.
During the last months, we have been working on the design of a platform capable of complying with all the necessary functionalities so that the program can be followed under the same conditions as in previous editions. Cleantech Camp 2020 will maintain the essence of other years, with the organization of virtual training weeks located in the cities of Barcelona, Madrid, and Lisbon, which will combine training sessions with specialized workshops for the development of projects and networking meetings, in which students entrepreneurs will come into contact with local experts. Once the program is completed, on Thursday, November 26, we will celebrate the awards ceremony, in which we will announce the winning projects of this year’s edition.
