Team Defence Information and the Ministry of Defence (MOD) have launched the 2020 Sustainability Challenge, with this year’s focus on carbon reduction.
The Joint Information Group Vanguard (JIG-V), a collaborative MOD and Defence Industry working group, is seeking radical proposals that identify areas where Defence could achieve reductions in environmental footprint, whilst still achieving its objectives. This could be through new technologies, innovations in policy, process or procedure, or through other previously unexplored options.
Titled “Delivering digitally-enabled and integrated support without costing the Earth”, the competition will coincide with the LOGNET conference taking place 12-13 March 2020.10 finalists will be selected to pitch
"Submissions are welcome from groups or individuals from academia, MOD and Industry at any level within the organisation. Ten of the most-promising ideas will be selected to pitch to senior defence personnel and other VIPs at an exclusive reception during LOGNET 20.
Finalists will be offered support and mentorship from academia, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and MOD to develop and finalise their ideas before they are invited to present to a panel of senior judges from UK MOD who will assess the entries and select the most innovative proposal."
The winner will be awarded a cash prize of £1,000. Team Defence Information are grateful to Harmonic for sponsoring this year's competition.
