The “Empowering People Award” aims to identify simple and appropriate technological innovations with business potential and make them visible and accesible to everyone. This is a global call out to summit practical innovations.
Following the first competition in 2012/2013, the Award is again on the lookout for appropriate technologies to improve basic supply in crucial areas. Inventors and social entrepreneurs are called upon to submit their simple tech innovations and related business strategies in eight categories.
Siemens Stiftung has, since the last contest, developed a comprehensive and growing Solutions Database showcasing the most promising innovations. Putting such inventions in an international spotlight, making their social impact potential visible fosters a climate of cooperation between developer and user on the ground. As members of the “empowering people. Network” the showcased projects are also supported through virtual and regional workshops, training and coaching.
