Never ones to shy away from a challenge, we are extremely pleased to announce our latest collaboration with IBM - and this time we are inviting tech companies and SMEs from across the EMEA region to take part in the Responsible Computing Tech Innovation Challenge!

We’re on the lookout for visionary partners who have developed innovative clean technologies. The applicants will need to demonstrate a commitment to pursuing solutions in clean energy, clean mobility, clean cities, as well as the sustainable use of natural resources.

If you’re an innovator eager to unleash your ideas and show how you’re using your creativity and resources to address issues surrounding sustainability and climate change, then this might just be the challenge you’ve been waiting for! By combining our knowledge of innovation and IBM’s engineering technology expertise, we want to support your vision by introducing your solutions to an international audience.

Addressing the world's most pressing challenges cannot be done in isolation - it requires collaboration and partnership on a global scale. The Responsible Computing Tech Innovation Challenge is all about finding an effective way that we can collaborate and make a positive difference focusing on how technology can make a change for good.

The challenge provides applicants with an exciting opportunity to run a 'proof-of-concept' project with the support of IBM's extensive Developer and R&D teams and showcase their solution to a host of leading corporates and governments. The most impactful candidates will be selected for a planned expo showcase at a sustainability digital conference in early 2021, while all participants will be given the opportunity to join IBM's PartnerWorld program.

To apply for the Responsible Computing Tech Innovation Challenge, please visit our landing page on The MSP Hub. The challenge is open applications until 29th January 2021 at 23:59 (GMT).

The finalists' selection will take place in February 2021.
