Mission Innovation Champions

Mission Innovation Champions are individuals with a track record of progressing creative new ideas that can drive the pace and scale of the clean energy revolution—the people who are inventing the products and services of the future or discovering the science that underpins them. They may be working in government laboratories, local universities, long-standing research firms, or their own recently launched clean technology start-up companies. Champions may be from “traditional” inventor disciplines such as sciences, engineering, mathematics, and architecture or from other fields.

The Champion for the European Commission will be selected from a European Union country that is not an individual member of Mission Innovation; this means : Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain).

One Champion from each Mission Innovation member participating in the program will be selected. Participating countries include: Australia, Austria, Canada, China, Denmark, European Commission, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, and the United Arab Emirates.
