Cleantech 50 To Watch Expert Panel

The Cleantech 50 to Watch Expert Panel is made up of over 31 early-stage innovation experts. The panel is diverse in geography, age, background and is at gender parity.

First, we asked the panel to nominate the companies that most impressed them with their early-stage high-impact solutions. We combined that with our own nominations and research on public early-stage awards. We then put this group of companies through qualitative and impact filters. We weighted all nominations by relevance trying to keep a sectoral and geographic balance.

A shortlist of 150 companies was reviewed and scored by the Expert Panel to reach the final 50. Get the complete report.

Join us in Brussels to meet the companies on the list and the judges whose expertise is behind their selection at Cleantech Forum Europe on 8-10 November 2022.
