ClimateLaunchpad National Finals are in full swing
This was an exciting and busy year for the team at ClimateLaunchpad. We had 30 countries participating from all over the EU. Around 270 teams attended the two-day training and follow-up sessions. There were a lot of exciting ideas on offer and a lot of ambitious teams behind them. We can’t wait to see what they do next.
The bootcamps are over for 2016 and now the National Finals are in full swing. We’re looking forward to learning which 90 teams will be competing in Tallinn, Estonia in October.
