The Everglades Foundation has partnered with the Office of Science, Technology and Policy (OSTP) to unveil the new George Barley Science Prize that will award winners of the competition with a prize totaling $11.2 million in cash and prizes over a six year period. Over 300 participants are expected from all over the world and the competition will take place in the summer of 2016.
The competition will incorporate multiple stages and benchmarks, with the first three years of the competition including three stepping-stone prizes. The first two prizes enable entrants to test technologies at lab scale and compare performance under similar operating conditions. The third stepping-stone prize enables entrants to test technologies for three months at pilot scale to demonstrate proof-of-concept that guides full-scale implementation.
