Transversal + Cross-Cutting Challenges
Technology, solutions and approaches to support decarbonisation of the economy.
Technology, solutions and approaches that introduce circular design, minimise resource-use and use-intensity.
Technology, solutions and approaches that deliver a circular, sustainable and resilient built-environment.
People & Communities
Activities that support a human-centric approach and activate citizens as individual or collective participants.
Sectoral and Nexus Challenges
Technology, solutions and approaches for the energy transition and decarbonisation.
Technology, solutions and approaches to ensure circularity in food production and consumption through sustainable and regenerative practices.
Technology, solutions and approaches to ensure circularity in fashion and textile production and consumption through sustainable and regenerative practices.
Water & Nature
Technology, solutions and approaches to implement fresh water circularity, nature-based solutions and preserving the ecosystem vitality.
Neural Platforms & Ecosystems
Distributed and network platforms deploying advanced neural networks, self-intelligent algorithm, machine learning, as well as more base network and social capabilities which enable democratisation of access and peer-to-peer transactions - across the value network from cradle-to-cradle.
Internet of Things & People
Machine-to-machine and human-to-machine connections that enable the remote and self-intelligent management or automation of network transaction between nodes - across the value network from cradle-to-cradle.
Distributed Ledger Blockchain
Distributed ledger technology which enables democratisation, transparency, traceability and accountability between peer-to-peer agents - across the value network from cradle-to-cradle.
All hardware and software technologies, which support the demand-driven innovation towards resolving ecological and social challenges, are evaluated and included, while considering the sustainability of each.
Financial System Disruption
Actions, technology and processes that will result in an audited, transparent and decentralised financial system that works globally and benefits local agents in a distributed and distributive manner, bringing an alternative to the centralised global financial models that are dominated by a few actors.
Peer-to-peer and Community financing
Technology, solutions and approaches that enable new financing instruments and mechanism through community-based financial entities and peer-to-peer exchanges - providing an alternative to the centralised and corporate financial entities that centralise and extract value from where it is created.
