Partnership announcement: Bach Khoa Innovation 2022

09/09/22

The ICM Falk Foundation is pleased to announce its official sponsorship of the Bach Khoa Innovation competition’s 2022 edition! 

Bach Khoa Innovation is an annual innovation competition initiated by Bach Khoa University, a national leader in training, scientific research, and transferring technology in Vietnam.

As their Bronze sponsor, we are supporting their student team, the Beavers, in their journey of creating a bacteria cellulose-based alternative to single-use plastics made from nata de coco. The team has won the third prize in the competition and is continuing their prototyping journey thanks to our Circular Innovation Grant support, working side by side with our Vietnam team to test their product in the B2B market.

Follow the Beavers on their Facebook page to learn more about their product development journey and the ICM Falk Foundation on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram to discover more local innovators just like the Beavers!

If you have a similar product developed by students and researchers in your university, reach out to us today for an opportunity to receive up to $5,000 in grant funding through our Circular Innovation Grant program.
