The 2016 competition launched on 1 March


The RELX Group Environmental Challenge is awarded to projects that best demonstrate how they can provide sustainable access to safe water where it is presently at risk and/or access to improved sanitation. Projects must have clear practical applicability, address identified need, and advance related issues such as health, education, or human rights.

There is a $50,000 prize for the first place entry and a $25,000 prize for the second place entry. The winners will receive free access for one year to ScienceDirect, Elsevier’s database of full text, scientific information, including almost 250,000 articles since 2000 in Environmental Sciences.
