You can win up to 50.000 € while making our planet greener! The Famae Research Prize will reward the best proposals for recovery and reduction solutions of all types of waste, including eco-design and renewable alternatives to the usual materials that end up in landfills. The competition aims to seek pragmatic, efficient, durable and money-saving solutions to make life easier for urban citizens while reducing their environmental footprint in relation to waste generation, water usage, food consumption, energy utilization and air pollution. The prize will enable brilliant and innovative inventors to make their ideas come true or to effectively launch their product. Famae is an endowment fund launched by a family whose members share common values: entrepreneurial spirit, openness to the world, empathy for people and focus on sustainable development.

The selected projects for the Research Prize will be helped by Famae in two ways: free & full support from experienced people and funding. This funding is to be used to pay for the project-related expenses such as product development costs, people wages or marketing expenses.
