Wharf42 is delighted to be an official sponsor of the Bridge Hub 2020 trans-Tasman Water Challenge. At 2.00pm this Friday (30 October), you can join us online as we announce the winner of the New Zealand start-up category.

We will be joined in person by the other New Zealand official sponsor, Zespri, who will be announcing the winner of the New Zealand research category.

The Water Challenge has attracted an amazing array of start-ups and research projects from around both Australia and New Zealand. Water is one of our most critical natural resources and with climate change creating more extreme weather events, including extended periods of drought, it is one of agriculture’s #1 issues. The 2020 Water Challenge has produced a wide range of exciting solutions designed to tackle the key issues of water availability, management and quality.

On Friday, we will not only be announcing the winners of the two key New Zealand categories, we’ll be announcing the Australian category winners. You will have the opportunity to hear their pitch and also hear from Vic Crone & David Thodey, co-leaders of the Innovation Sector Group within the Australia New Zealand Leadership Forum. It promises to be a an inspiring virtual event.The 2020 Water Challenge Finale and the Announcement of Winners runs from 2.00pm – 2.30pm (NZT).

To join us on Friday, simply register your (free) spot at https://waterchallengefinale.eventbrite.com.au. We look forward to seeing you (virtually of course) then.
