A contest of the environmental friendly inventions/innovations for the youth aged from 16 to 35 in Ukraine called to reduce the exogenous harm to the eco system.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Polluting heavy industry, bureaucratic law, inadequate administration and “brain drain” have swallowed the innovative development of Ukraine. Obtaining the patent is very expensive and extremely long procedure. Inventors think it is better to keep it for the table. Winners of the contest will receive the practical skills on the patenting procedure under the professional supervision or a basis for the required experiments and some financial aid.
How will this project solve this problem?
If we reveal the target inventions/innovations and implement them we will be able to reduce the exogenous harm on the eco system.
Potential Long Term Impact
The community, regardless the country, will receive the inventions/innovations ready for the practical introduction (further experimental approbation). Collected database could serve as basis for the "Innovation Association of Ukraine" for example.
