MI Champions Programme - Championing and accelerating the clean energy revolution. A programme for recognizing and supporting the next wave of energy technology leaders
Mission Innovation (MI) Champions Programme seeks to celebrate innovative individuals who are accelerating the clean energy revolution. This programme will recognize exceptional researchers and innovators who are developing novel ways of making energy cleaner, cheaper, and more reliable by using it more efficiently.
Mission Innovation Champions will be individuals with a track record of progressing creative new ideas that can drive the pace and scale of the clean energy revolution—the people who are inventing the products and services of the future or discovering the science that underpins them. The programme will therefore call worldwide attention to emerging innovators from across the globe.
One Champion from each Mission Innovation member country participating in the MI Champions Program, and one Champion for the European Commission (this being from a European Union country that is not an individual member of Mission Innovation) will be selected.
Registration will be open until 10 September 2018.
