The Plastics Data Challenge is a global innovation challenge that will source, support, and scale innovative solutions that address the leakage of plastic waste into the environment.

The challenge invites all innovators worldwide (including academic institutions, startups, companies, and data scientists) to submit their innovative data-driven solutions that advance plastic waste management and the circular economy in South and Southeast Asia. Applications closed on March 15th and the submissions are currently under review by a team of technical experts. 

Those selected as a Semi-Finalist will be invited to participate in a Digital Innovation Summit this May followed by a six-week pilot readiness program with leading experts. Semifinalists will also be granted mentorship and technical support customised to their needs, in addition to the opportunity to be awarded $10,000 USD to pilot their innovation in the region!
