The global CODE_n13 competition, dubbed “Smart Solutions for Global Challenge, is now open and welcomes entries from green IT entrepreneurs who are designing using ARM based technology.
CODE_n13 is seeking IT-based concepts for sustainable energy supply and usage. These could be issues like the intelligent distribution of energy thanks to smart grids, clean-tech approaches to maximising efficiency, or electro-mobility as an example of alternative energy concepts; the scope of related topics also includes modern management concepts for electricity supply in cities and buildings.
“CODE_n13 welcomes entries from designers using ARM technology to develop IT-based solutions to sustainable energy, including lower power consumption and increased energy efficiency,” commented a spokesperson for GFT Technologies AG, which specialises in designing and implementing IT solutions for the financial services industry. GFT is one of the three sponsors of the event which also includes Ernst & Young GmbH and the Deutsche Messe AG.
The 50 best solutions will take to the stage at CeBIT Hanover, Germany, in March of 2013. Cash prizes totalling up to 30,000 Euros will be awarded to the most cutting edge designs.
All companies that have completed at least one business transaction and were founded in or after 2006 are eligible to enter. Companies can register online at www.code-n.org. The deadline for submissions is 18 November 2012.
