Three prizes of each € 10.000 will be awarded to the best idea within the categories of: Society, Health, and Environment & Climate. The categories are based on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
This competition is open to (teams of) researchers, staff and students in all disciplines from all participating Amsterdam universities, universities of applied sciences, academic medical centres and public research centres.
