June 25, 2014 · 0 comments

The Future Technologies for Water Competition (FTW) aims to identify breakthrough technologies for safe water with a sustainable business plan with wide-scale applicability. 

The first-place winner will receive $15,000, and the second-place winner will receive $5,000.

From June 9 until July 31, we will be accepting initial entries in the form of a one-page summary, via the competition website.

Entries should relate to the following themes:

  • Shortening the water cycle by looking at grey water and/or wastewater reuse
  • Rapid testing of water samples with an emphasis on in situ, online testing
  • Protecting vulnerable and sensitive populations (e.g. young, elderly, immunocompromised)

The Future Technologies for Water competition is managed by the Water Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and sponsored by Takata Corporation.
