“Innovate for Impact: Siemens Design Challenge” was recently announced in connection with World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development on March 4. The challenge, a collaboration between Siemens and Engineering for Change (E4C), gives socially minded engineers and hardware innovators the opportunity to address two of the U.N.’s sustainable development goals focused on zero hunger and clean water. Siemens would love to see Clemson talent showcased in this initiative, which offers a $10,000 prize for each problem and the opportunity to meet the Siemens USA CEO.
Problem 1: A way to reduce farm-to-table loss in lower resource settings that lack electricity.
Problem 2: A way to remove salt contamination from water that is low-cost and energy efficient.
