Policy Paper competition: e-WACEE’20 would begin with a call for papers from researchers and other stakeholders in the public and private sectors on policies and initiatives that can advance clean energy and environment awareness/adoption in West Africa. The papers would be reviewed by a panel of industry experts and academia. The winners of the policy paper competition would also be provided with live speaking slots during the main conference.
Start-up competition: Start-ups from across West Africa would be invited to submit 2-minute videos about their projects or companies. These videos would be hosted on theeWACEE’20 website for one month (running concurrently with the call for policy papers) and available for the public to vote. The start-ups with the most votes would be selected to participate in an online pitching session with a panel of judges selected by AHK Nigeria, where the winners would be selected. The selected start-ups would also feature in a video magazine available for the duration of the eWACEE’20 event. A short profile of the winners would also be available on the online catalogue.
