With the Building Holland Innovation Challenge 2018, Building Holland and Innovations From Holland want to highlight innovations with impact. Innovations that make a substantial contribution to the major social issues facing the sector: CO2 reduction (energy use of buildings and bound energy in materials), climate adaptation, resource use, healthy indoor air of buildings, suitable living environments and the strong aging of technical staff. It is certain that better and cheaper building solutions have to be devised for this. Industrialization and digitization are key concepts. Eligible are innovations that are produced, developed or applied in practice in pilots, experiments or projects in the Netherlands.
Innovation Challenge 2018
That is why Building Holland and Innovations From Holland are challenging organizations to announce their Innovations and to sign up for the Innovation Challenge. We want to reward meaning with the presentation of the Innovation Award. Meaning that innovations have for the direct or indirect solving of these social issues. It may for example be: new materials, products, production technologies, concepts, business models, software or even complete propositions. The jury will assess them on impact, scalability, innovation level and customer value.
