LG Chem will form a judging panel of internal experts to evaluate the research proposals based on the company’s sustainability strategies and business plans.

The panel will also consider the technological innovativeness, marketability, and price competitiveness to draw up a shortlist. The nominees will be notified individually in July.

Nominated universities and institutes will be granted up to $150,000 of research and development expenses per year during their projects, as well as opportunities for researcher dispatch and technology exchange to support them.

Since LG Chem held the 1st Global Innovation Contest in 2018, it has selected a total of 30 innovative research projects from major universities including Harvard, Stanford, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The company has been supporting them with project expenses and technology exchange.

“The Global Innovation Contest has great significance as it will provide corporate-academia collaboration opportunities to develop innovative R&D level technology into commercial technology,” said Jiyung Yu, the CTO of LG Chem.

Yu added, “We will continue to innovate ourselves to impress our future customers by connecting our own strengths with external technologies.”
