Dear Reader,

The success from last year will even been topped this year – by the end of August we are going to reach the mark of 1.000 registrations, setting a new record for the SEA in 2015.

The submission process for the SEA 2015 will be extended until the 7th of September. All received registrations after that date will take part at the SEA 2016.

In the coming weeks our prominent international jury will review the submitted ideas from a variety of sectors and select the most innovative and exciting projects in each of the eight categories. On the 12th of November the winners of the SEA 2015 will be announced and honoured at a gala event in the Sofiensäle Vienna, thereby sending out a clear signal for sustainability and Sustainable Entrepreneurship and its essential influence on the world of tomorrow.

Yours,

Interesting SEA projects of the past
discovering hands®, Germany

discovering hands® uses the superior sense of touch of blind and visually handicapped people to improve tactile diagnosis for the early detection of breast cancer. This innovative concept not only creates a high level of reliability in terms of detecting changes in the breast, but also allows women to experience a pleasant examination situation where a large amount of attention and time is devoted to them.

Ecovative Design (project name: Myco Board), USA

Ecovative Design produces materials from agricultural by-products and mushrooms, which are used as a natural alternative to plastic or wood. At a time of increasing environmental pollution through petroleum-based plastics, this bio-material can be regarded as a thoroughly revolutionary method of producing anything from packaging or construction materials to surfboards.

Polycular (project name: ÖkoGotschi), Austria
