Do you have an idea for a solution that could help Ireland become climate neutral and resilient by 2050?

The 2050 Challenge will support researchers to be part of the transition to a climate-resilient, biodiversity-rich, environmentally sustainable and climate-neutral economy. Participation in the challenge will involve teams progressing through phases, each supporting further development of the challenge concept and solution, to compete for an overall Prize Award of €1M.

It is an agile, fast-paced programme that allows research teams to work with societal stakeholders to deliver tangible impact through their research. In addition to funding, teams are provided with training and mentoring to support acceleration of an idea and to demonstrate how it can solve real-world problems. Participation has the potential to create significant career development and collaborative opportunities.
