As the world begins to transition into the new normal, we continue to embrace our innovation mindset in order to reimagine the way we do business.
This global call aims to transform innovation into future solutions for the global energy landscape and the new global needs. To do so, we will work hand-in-hand with solvers, startups and SMEs on challenges that span across our organisation and our business.
In June, we launched a series of open challenges through our Open Innovability platform, and we are delighted to announce that we’ve recently added two more to the list. For this reason, when it comes to submitting proposals for all the challenges, the deadline has been extended to 30 November 2020.
In order to ensure open access to technology and energy for more people, we want to make a tangible contribution to the development of the social and economic growth in rural and marginalised areas. Access to energy is vital for our communities, and we cannot allow connectivity to become another obstacle during the crisis, which has already increased social inequalities throughout the world. For this reason, our two new sustainability-focused challenges aim not only to keep our rural communities connected, but to also support their local economic activity through new business models and solutions.
At Enel, we know that innovation is open and always evolving, and that the main vehicle through which solutions travel is you. We invite you to support the changing global reality by becoming part of the solution to our challenges.
Let’s keep innovating and reshaping together.
