Bombardier has launched “You City,” an interactive innovation contest. The competition is open to students and professionals with a vision for the future of urban mobility. Participants are invited to choose one of three work streams, focused on engineering, business, or urban planning, and to apply their proposals to one of three types of cities: mature markets, BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) or new emerging markets. The winning concepts will be evaluated by experts at Bombardier, and voted for by You City’s online community as well as on social media.
The Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy has announced the winners of the inaugural U.S. Dairy Sustainability Awards, a program to recognize dairy farms, dairy companies, and collaborative partnerships for efforts that advance the sustainability of the dairy industry. An independent panel of judges representing the dairy supply chain, as well as representatives of government, media, and business organizations, selected this year’s winners, based on their program’s or project’s results as measured by economic, environmental and social responsibility aspects. Among the winners were Blue spruce Farm, Holsum Dairies, and Werkhoven Dairy.
