SMOGATHON 2017 - Global competition for smog-fighting innovations

If your company has any solution that can help fight air pollution – Smogathon is the contest especially for you!

Online applications will be open from 15 June 2017 to 15 August 2017.

Who can apply? We welcome any group that works as a registered company, start-up, foundation, or a research group with a legal entity. The main requirement is that your solution needs to fight smog. It can be an air purifier, a device that measures the levels of pollutants, or anything that can help! Applications will be evaluated on an ongoing basis, so early applicants will know in advance when to book their flights to one of the semi-final locations and will have a greater chance of saving their spot. If your team needs to travel for more than 500 kilometres in order to participate in a semi-final, we can provide you with financial support of up to $500 to cover (part of) your travel expenses.

In 2017, the most-wanted categories of projects include:
  • indoor air purifying
  • outdoor air purifying
  • household power and heat generation and energy storage
  • smog as a resource
  • new ways of smog mapping and predicting
  • air pollution prevention
