GenerationS, the RVC platform for corporate innovations development, begins its search for projects related to biodegradable coatings for controlled release fertilizers.
The search is conducted in partnership with one of the leading world fertilize producer and is focused on a highly specialized technology of fully biodegradable coating for controlled release fertilizers and a technology for applying this coating.
Projects that successfully pass the assessment stages will have a unique opportunity to work with the international producer of fertilizers. The form of potential cooperation will be determined for every project individually and might include both the possibility of project investments and collaborative technology improvement with the foundation of a joint venture.
Startups from all over the world can apply on the website before September 28th.
