The participants are divided into Innovation Group and Entrepreneurship Group.


1. Innovation Group

Participants are undergraduates and postgraduates in universities and scientific research institutes, full-time undergraduate and postgraduate graduates, teachers in colleges and universities, and scientists and technicians in enterprises. The applicant must be the project leader. 


2. Entrepreneurship Group

Participants are domestic and foreign teams from registered companies and start-ups. They should have basic product, technology or service prototypes, own intellectual property rights, and seek for commercial scale. The applicant must be the founder, legal representative or technical director of the start-up.

Participating startups and teams should stick to the topic of Green and Low Carbon to connect with Clean Energy, Green Materials, Energy Conservation and Low Carbon, and Resources Recycling to conduct entrepreneurial practices, and possess scientific and technological innovation achievements and technology / product / innovative services / project plans /  implementation plans, etc.  The product / project should be innovative, commercialized, scalable, green and society-friendly.  IP should be owned by the participant or the participant should obtain written authorization of IP owner and submit letter of commitment.
