LAUNCH: Energy Forum November 10-13, 2011

Posted on by awebb


Elvir Causevic, Managing Director of Ocean Tomo’s Strategy Practice, will visit the Kennedy Space Center in Florida to participate in the LAUNCH Energy Forum on November 10-13.

Last year LAUNCH executed two challenges which focused on water and health but this week the focus issue is energy. The LAUNCH program is a global initiative to identify and support innovators that work to contribute to a sustainable future and to finding solutions to the challenges of our society.

“Access to sustainable sources of energy is one of the 21st century’s greatest challenges, and this group of innovators stands a real chance of making a significant impact in meeting that challenge,” said Dr. Alex Dehgan, Science and Technology Adviser to the Administrator at USAID.

This week’s Energy Forum will bring together innovators and council members to discuss innovations that can change the way the world handles critical sustainability issues.

During the three day Forum, innovators will discuss their proposed solutions to energy issues with LAUNCH Council members, who represent the business, investment, international development, policy, engineering, science, communications and sustainability sectors.

Elvir Causevic will represent Ocean Tomo and Invent for Humanity during the Forum. We are looking forward to working with NASA and the LAUNCH program to continue the search for sustainable, appropriate innovations.
