Innovation competition helps enterprises seek solutions

Shanghai and the other three provinces of Yangtze River Delta released 500 items of technique demands worldwide for solutions Wednesday during a national innovation competition.

Shanghai and the other three provinces of Yangtze River Delta released 500 items of technique demands worldwide to look for solutions as part of the Third China Innovation Challenge (Shanghai) and First Yangtze River Delta International Innovation Challenge competition, Shanghai science and technology commission announced Wednesday.

The demands cover various fields including electronic information, biomedicine, advanced manufacturing and automation, material, resource and environmental.

The next step of the competition, which kicked off in April this year, will be the matching of demands and solutions and some live contests.

According to Xu Rong, founder and CEO of UMORE Consulting, a science and technology service agency, one environment-related demand they released this time is seeking provider of facilities on the treatment of black and stinky water bodies. The demand is from a Jiangsu-based enterprise that wants to help government clean black and stinky creeks but lacks technologies and facilities.

"Today I forwarded the information and a Suzhou-based company approached me, saying they can solve it," Xu told Shanghai Daily. UMORE will help selecting the most fitted supplier for the enterprise.
