Our 2023 Event and Award Cycle have finished. Congratulations to our winners. The Ocean Exchange Call for Solutions will open again in 2024, and we look forward to seeing many new innovative solutions in our next application cycle.
Each year, Ocean Exchange hosts an event to recognize and help advance innovation in technologies aimed at the health of our oceans and the Blue Economy. Solutions represent such categories as alternative materials, CO2 reduction and sequestration, data/robotics, digitalization, energy, fisheries/marine habitat, vessel/port operations, and water treatment.
The Ocean Exchange event is also important in creating awareness of the role the oceans play in the health and future of our planet, as well as showcasing advancements that are already being made to mitigate the effects of climate change that impact all of us. It has become a must-attend experience for industry experts and decision-makers from around the world. We invite you to be part of it.
At the event, the winners of the Neptune, Wallenius Wilhelmsen Orcelle®, and Transportation Hub Awards are chosen—based on the impact, level of innovation, and the ability to execute the presented solution. The winners are chosen by delegates representing business, academia, government, and non-profits. Each award has nondilutive prize money of $100,000 USD. In addition, there are two Collegiate Awards, presented to younger start-up companies, with prize money of $10,000 USD.
While significant, the prize money is only part of the story. This event is attended by senior-level executives and decision-makers from all key sectors involved in the Blue Economy. These individuals are part of Ocean Exchange’s ecosystem that supports award winners and other participants in the event in further development and commercialization of their solutions.
