Canada Looks for the Next Big Battery Breakthrough

Impact Canada is working on a $4.5-million project known as the Charging the Future Challenge. The goal is to accelerate made-in-Canada battery innovation, build a clean energy future, and provide economic growth in Canada. The 18-month challenge offers five finalists the opportunity to pitch their ideas for battery breakthroughs to a jury for a chance to win up to $700,000 each to develop battery prototypes, with the winner receiving a $1 million grand prize.

Are you up for the challenge? Join their webinar on September 26 at 1500h. Topics covered include Charging the Future Challenge application guidelines, eligibility requirements, timelines, and evaluation criteria. The webinar will be in French, with materials provided in French and English. This is your chance to ask questions — which will be answered in French and English.

The deadline to apply is October 28, 2019.
