We're looking for ideas at all stages of research and development that are rooted in solid science and will help the world reduce emissions while finding useful applications for carbon. Ideas are welcome from, but not limited to, companies, academic researchers, research institutions, consultants, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and inventors. Round One Winners were announced in April 2014 at Zero2014: A Conference for a Low Carbon Future.
