Today's environmental and sustainability concerns are on top of the list of priorities for the industry, society and governments. The urgent need to solve problems of air pollution and climate change is challenging the industry to meet new quality and environment standards for production, supply and product development as well as waste reclying. Green technologies, IoT, smart apps and the cleantech industry are fast emerging not only from the traditional industry but also from the Startups and research organizations that launch disruptive and very innovate solutions and products into the market. SmartCities are developing fast while launching new technology calls to the industry, Startups and research organizations. There is a great amount of research funding available for any player in the are of green technologies such as desalination, solid waste management, recycling etc. The demand for innovation in environmental friendly technology is growing and there are lots of opportunities for cooperation and join development.

Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology Call

Nurses have always been critical partners on the frontlines of care, and the backbone of our healthcare system. The COVID-19 pandemic has raised new challenges for nurses and health workers and brought into focus the obstacles that they face around the world, every day. The power of nurse-led innovation and know-how may be more critical than ever when developing potential solutions amid a global crisis. With extensive patient experience, nurses’ ideas have the potential to profoundly improve human health. In connection with our overall commitment to supporting frontline healthcare workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Johnson & Johnson is proud to continue the Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenges series with a new challenge inspired by the NurseHack4Health: COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon where over 500 nurses, healthcare professionals, and tech enthusiasts convened virtually to help ideate potential solutions for COVID-19 health challenges. This QuickFire Challenge is open to all nurse innovators, and aims to help nurture early-stage ideas from the frontlines of COVID-19 by celebrating, supporting, & mentoring the nurse innovators behind them. Introducing the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in COVID-19 Patient Care together with the American Organization for Nursing LeadershipTM (AONL) and the Society of Nurse Scientists, Innovators, Entrepreneurs, & Leaders (SONSIEL). Nurses from around the world are invited to submit ideas aiming to improve COVID-19 patient care. The nurse innovators with the best idea(s) will receive up to $100,000 in grant funding, mentoring from experts across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, and access to the Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS ecosystem to help bring their ideas to life. As innovators on the frontlines of healthcare, nurses have the power to profoundly change lives. Johnson & Johnson has the scale, resources and know-how to help move them forward. Put these two together, and that changes everything. We have never stopped and never will stop advocating for, elevating and empowering nurses as innovative, critical leaders on the frontline.

PepsiCo seeks to deliver a world-class consumer experience with its products and that experience begins with the packaging. PepsiCo seeks to identify a variety of new packaging technologies to increase consumer engagement for its global beverage and snack products. Below are some examples of new innovations and technologies that can deliver a different and unique experience for consumers such as: • Smart/interactive packaging o Consumer-level interactions that are visual, sound-based, touch-based o Technologies can be incorporated into caps, labels, cans, multi-pack carriers, etc. or even via vending equipment or an application o Ideal situation is interactive packaging that triggers a positive emotion in consumer during PepsiCo beverage consumption • Premium and/or personalized packaging o Advanced packaging decoration technologies like innovative labels, inks, etc. o Unique dosing methods or closures o Packaging that can create theater at the point of consumption, e.g. like Drinkfinity o Packaging or materials (e.g. coatings) that can keep beverages colder for longer o Other ways of offering consumer customization • User-friendly packaging o Packaging that is easy to open and use for users of all ages and abilities o Packaging that can inhibit or prevent spillage or mess The above list is not meant to be exclusive – if you have a packaging-related technology that can provide new consumer experience, we'd love to hear from you. Technologies that can successfully combine more than one of these interest areas are highly desirable. Please note: all proposed technologies must have advanced beyond the conceptual stage.

PepsiCo is seeking novel bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation methods that reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals and/or water in the sanitation process. It is very important to sanitize packaging containing beverages intended for human consumption. Failure to adequately sanitize bottles and bottle closures to remove bacteria, viruses, molds, yeasts, and spores may have serious consequences with respect to product quality and safety, potentially leading to negative customer reactions or even product recall. Peracetic acid (PAA) is a commonly employed and highly effective sanitizer, particularly when used in conjunction with hydrogen peroxide. However, PAA sanitation processes involve a significant amount of water throughout the process including dilution, water rinsing of packaging post-treatment and chemical disposal. Globally, trillions of gallons of beverages are bottled each year. While preserved carbonated soft drinks (CSDs) are the traditional leader in market share, other drinks such as bottled water, juices, non-preserved CSDs, and ready-to-drink teas and coffees are gaining in share. New inventions are needed to ensure that these drinks remain safe, while reducing unnecessary chemical and/or water consumption during production. Proposed solutions should achieve the following objectives: •Reduce or eliminate the amount of water used in bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation processes; and/or •Reduce or eliminate the use of chemicals in bottle and/or bottle closure sanitation processes.
