International Contest

Background:


Over 130 countries globally have declared their climate commitment to achieve “net zero emissions” by the year 2050. Taiwan, in March of 2022, released the framework of “2050 Net Zero Emissions Five Pathways (Building, Transportation, Industry, Electricity, and Negative Carbon Technology),” along with four major transformation strategies (Energy, Industry, Life, and Society), and two foundational pillars (Technology Research and Development, Climate Legislation). A total of 12 key strategies were proposed, including wind power, solar power, hydrogen energy, forward-looking energy, power systems and storage, energy saving, carbon capture utilization and storage, electrification and decarbonization of transport, resource circulation and zero waste, natural carbon sinks, and net zero green living. All of these are considered “technology research and development” key strategies for developing net zero and negative emission technologies.

This is a corporate foundation, carrying the social responsibility of enterprises in the era of net zero emissions. In terms of the essence of an educational foundation, it should operate with the spirit of talent cultivation. With the support of National Taiwan University, the foundation has transitioned from organizing the “Green Tech” international contest for twelve years to focusing on the theme of “Net Zero Tech” since 2023. In 2024, the plan is to restore the scale of simultaneous promotion of the main contest and the international contest, which was in place before the pandemic. Beyond encouraging the involvement of domestic and international university students and faculty in innovative zero-carbon technologies, the foundation aims to make Taiwan a hub for international exchange in net zero technology, talent development, and industrial growth through high-profile international contests and platforms.

Objectives:


The “Net Zero Tech International Contest” is designed to cultivate talent development, strengthen industry-academic partnerships, facilitate global technological exchanges, and promote widespread understanding of net zero principles. This initiative aims to secure professional acclaim and establish a significant worldwide impact by:

  • Award significant financial incentives to distinguished professors worldwide for research in net zero and negative emissions technologies, and support educators in guiding future experts in these critical fields.

  • Establish a “Net Zero” platform to facilitate technical exchange and networking across industry, government, academia, and research sectors.

  • Disseminate net zero knowledge to foster societal consensus and action on energy conservation and environmental protection.

  • Support the four key transformation strategies in energy, industry, lifestyle, and society, driving progress towards a sustainable future.
