It's official: Meet the 17 teams from around the world working to rethink and redesign the way economies work in Wege Prize 2018!
Wege Prize Phase I judges are hard at work evaluating teams' applications and research plans and providing feedback and guidance for Phase II. Teams’ next challenge is to translate their initial research into the first draft of a Project Summary, an informative and visually compelling document that communicates their fully-developed solution.
The expertise of the Phase I judges, ranging from design and sustainable business to materials and environmental resource management, will help teams take their project to the next level. Moving forward, they'll need to focus more intently on customer/user need, economic feasibility, a sound business model, and the relation of their solution to the larger system of the circular economy.
Project Summary 1st Drafts are due on January 15, 2018.
