Game Changer: The two team directors discuss the ins and outs of the project and why they believe it could be a game changer
PPI: What is the overall mission of the Two Team Project?
Marco Mensink: CePi launched the 2050 Roadmap (“Unfold the future”) to see if it was possible to follow the eU ambition to decarbonise the economy by 80%. We added the second target of an increase of 50% added value in the industry. The Roadmap was a success story with thousands of copies distributed and rec- ognition from the european institutions. We found that to meet the carbon reduction challenge, breakthrough technologies are needed. CePi chose to put two teams in competition to see if we could identify the disruptive innovations needed to achieve this long term target. This open-innovation process was called the “Two Team Project”.
