D-Hub Challenges

The GCCA Deployment Hub is the state-of-the-art Open Innovation/Request for Proposal (RFP) service that allows to systematically source technologies and solutions comprised within the global GCCA cluster network.

Both large corporations and GCCA partner clusters can initiate Challenge projects, and as “Seekers" gain global visibility in defined target markets. Cluster member companies with proven technologies that are ready to deploy may submit their solutions, and as “Solvers" gain direct access to corporates and investors.

Two D-Hub Challenge examples are:

  • GCCA Award 2016

As an online marketplace, the D-Hub systematically connects large corporates, SME's, startups and investors. Our focus is to enable the timely and targeted identification of innovative as well as established cleantech solutions, and matching them with viable partners, projects and investment.

This is much different than a business plan competition: the GCCA D-Hub offers “Technology Pull" Challenges driven by concrete industry and cluster needs.

GCCA supports the customized development, marketing and realization of D-Hub Challenges.
