2018 AquaHacking Challenge Semi-Finals Winners Announced
Congratulations to the five #AquaHacking Challenge finalists!
Ovivo was honored to be a part of the jury of experts responsible for selecting the 5 finalists. It was incredible to see so many bright and innovative young minds dedicated to solving some of the major issues threatening Lake Ontario and beyond.
Out of 16 teams, 5 teams were selected by the jury panel. Each team won $2,000 to continue development of their idea to compete in the finals. Finalists will continue working with mentors, including experts from Ovivo, to refine their solutions to critical water issues to compete in the final round on October 25!
There were four challenges this year:
- Water Crisis Prediction & Adaptation
- Phosphorus Capture & Recycling in Farming
- Tackling Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals
- Real-Time Reporting of Sewage Overflow and Untreated Sewage Spills
The 5 winning teams are: EGC Labs, SWIM, M Power Software Team, WaterPuris and E-Nundation. Ovivo is especially thrilled to be helping EGC Labs on their solution that optimizes the power of #AI to report on combined #sewer overflows in real-time, on a website that the public can access to be aware, informed, and adequately prepared for the impacts.
Please join us in congratulating this year’s finalists!
