The overall global winner of the 2013 competition will be able to choose a luxury photo safari from a range of exotic locations sponsored by CBRE. Prizes will also be awarded to two runners-up and for the 24 standout images representing each hour of the day.
CBRE launched the Real Green Research Challenge, a US$1 million commitment to fund leading-edge sustainability research and innovation relating to commercial real estate.
Over the next four years, CBRE will award up to US$1 million to fund independent academic research into sustainable real estate practices. Selected applicants will receive up to $250,000 for basic research and implementation, with the first successful proposals expected to receive initial funding in February 2013. In addition to monetary funds, RGRC-funded projects will have access to CBRE’s global market data and resources to help them to commercialize their ideas.
The types of research the RGRC programme will fund include productivity studies, large-scale predictive modeling, energy efficiency technologies, data management programmes and diagnostic tools.
CBRE has assembled an authoritative panel of internal and external global experts and thought-leaders to evaluate research proposals. The judges include members of academia, non-governmental organizations and industry.
Full details about the RGRC, its evaluation criteria, and terms and conditions are available at www.cbre.com/rgrc. Submissions will be accepted via the website until 31 December 2012.
