The next Helsinki Energy Challenge webinar will be organised on 20 August. The webinar will support willing participants to the Helsinki Energy Challenge to team up and to create high-impact, winning proposals. Webinar participants will have the opportunity to give a three-minute pitch about their idea or solution, as well as find partners with whom they can finalize their competition proposal. Team-building is also actively taking place on the Helsinki Energy Challenge Collaboration Platform.

The webinar is organised in cooperation with the sustainability collaboration accelerator Solved.
