Up to five individuals or companies will secure £30,000 R&D contracts, to develop a design solution in the first phase of the competition.

Successful companies secure 100 per cent funding, retain the intellectual property developed during the competition and will be well placed to exploit this large and expanding international market.

The competition opens on Monday, August 20 and an information event will be held in Perth on Tuesday, August 28.
