ESM congratulates the winners of the SusCritMOOC business idea competition

The ESM congratulates the two teams who won in the SusCritMOOC business idea competition. At the end of our co-developed MOOC, the participants could submit a business idea proposal that would make critical raw materials management more sustainable. Both teams won 500€ price money together with an 1 hour consultation hour that was held this week on zoom. These sessions were held to help them progress with their projects and connect with experts in their field.
