About us[edit | edit source]
The “empowering people. Award” of the Siemens Stiftung aims to identify and present appropriate technical solutions for basic supply problems in developing and emerging countries. The competition has a twofold approach: Firstly, identify and award appropriate solutions. Secondly, build up a database of inventions that is accessible to actors in developmental cooperation. The platform allows all the entrants involved to network and further evolve products and solutions. Cooperation development organizations, NGOs and institutions may also approach inventors to further their products.
