Sustainable Innovation Student Competition (SISC) 2009
3 November, 2009
Two teams of students from our Faculty did well in the first annual Sustainable Innovation Student Competition (SISC).
The competition was established by 51Sim in partnership with Camco, 51Give and the Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy. Open to all university students in Mainland China and Hong Kong, it aims to foster environmental entrepreneurship and encourage Chinese students to develop imaginative and viable business plans that offer solutions to the problem of climate change.
The competition focuses on three categories: Green Transport, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. In Round 1, teams had to propose a business idea. In Round 2, winning teams from Round 1 had to submit a detailed business plan. In the final round, held on 3 November, selected teams presented their business plan to a panel of expert judges.
