Call for Proposals for The first National Toilet Technology Innovation Contest in China! - China National Tourism Administration and BMGF

Dear all,

I am really pleased to forward this call for proposal from the China National Tourism Administration (CNTA) for innovative public toilet facilities (see details in the attachment below at the end of this post). This is an opportunity to demonstrate how your invention can be applied in a real working environment. The call is open to all industry partners and academic institutions who can propose solutions that will help the CNTA. You can bid as individual organization of submit joint proposal.

We estimated that the market for reinvented toilet in China is approx. $2bn. Through this call, the CNTA initiative provides a great platform to better understand how innovative toilet technology will help addressing the sanitation crisis. I am hopeful that this initiative will also create opportunities to further extend their application in the country.

With my best regards;
