“Collaborating with startups, scale ups and university innovators is truly inspiring. Together we can tackle so many challenges. That’s what we learned last year when we awarded 3 finalists with a joint development agreement. I’m looking forward to your ideas, the in depth discussions on our challenge platform and working with you at our 3-day collaborative event in Sweden. I hope this Challenge will be the start of a long lasting innovative partnership between you and us”. - Peter Nieuwenhuizen, Director RD&I & Sustainability, Nouryon
