Each team is now awarded $25,000 from JITRI and Fraunhofer to develop its project! To turn their ideas into innovative projects, the organizations uploaded their proposals on the Innovation Hub SAIRA and then used the platform to team up with their partners. The Scientific Advisory Board then chose five finalist teams who got to participate in pitch training sessions and then present their innovations at WAITRO://50.

Now we are looking forward to seeing those water challenges being tackled!
