A competition on using science to tackle environmental challenges has received 27 million Danish kroner (€3.6m) in government funding.
The competition, launched on 18 March, focuses on three topics to be explored by scientists. These are transforming carbon dioxide into a resource, reducing plastic waste and improving sustainable large-scale food production.
Winning teams will receive a share worth kr9m of the total funding to bring their innovation to market. All proposals will be evaluated by a group of experts from around the world, the government has announced.
