Creative Innovation 2013 is delighted to partner with a National Innovation Program – The Australian Global Impact Competition, that the Australian Institute for Commercialisation (AIC) is hosting on behalf of the Singularity University based at the NASA Research Park in Silicon Valley, USA. The AIC, with support from the Queensland Government and GBST Holdings have developed a national competition for entrepreneurs and high achieving graduate students to conceptually develop and apply innovative ideas to a range of national issues, including, energy, water, environment, health, food, security and poverty.
The winner of this competition will receive a grant to attend the Singularity University 10-week Graduate Studies Program (GSP), which is designed for future leaders who want to build innovative solutions to global challenges. The winner will be exposed to investors, funding bodies and mentors who are part of the Singularity University alumni and will have the opportunity to pitch their innovative concept to other global winners with the goal of raising awareness and creating solutions for global problems.
The winner will also receive one of the ten Ci2013 scholarships to attend Creative Innovation 2013.
