GAP Green Application

In the light of the global imperative to use our resources with great responsibility, the GAP Green innovation competition aims to support innovations that more effectively manage the use of water and energy by citizens and enterprises in Gauteng, whilst ensuring the preparedness and adaptability of the broader population to the effects of climate change and increased competition and associated costs for essential resources.

Mainstream adoption of green technologies
This year we are seeking strong technical solutions from universities and research institutes but also specifically invite submissions related to grassroots, community and social innovations.
