COINS Construction Industry Grand Challenge - Enter Your Ideas

Entries are now open for the COINS Construction Industry Grand Challenge (CCIGC), a global competition to uncover innovative ideas that can improve the built environment.

Construction Industry Solutions (COINS) launched the Grand Challenge in 2015 to give the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders the support they need to bring their construction ideas to life. Applicants can enter their ideas in either the Undergraduate competition, which is available to undergraduate students, or the wider Open competition, targeted at innovators, entrepreneurs and professionals. There are three categories to choose from in New & Emerging Technologies, Sustainability and Leadership.

Winners can expect to receive paid internships, cash prizes, research and development funding and the chance to be exposed to some of the industry’s most influential leaders. Up to 18 finalists will be invited on a trip to the COINS Construction Innovation Conference & Exhibition as well as the Grand Challenge Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony in London on 8 February 2017.

The entry deadline is Friday 16 December 2016 and finalists will be notified on 30 December 2016. For more information and to enter, visit the COINS Grand Challenge website
