To foster the implementation of intelligent solar energy solutions Siemens Stiftung is joining forces through awarding a Special Prize in the “Solar for All” Contest of Canopus Foundation. The winner will receive a special prize of 10,000 Euros as well as an offer of membership in our international Network support program that promotes relevant technological and entrepreneurial approaches with potential for sustainable development.
