Recruiting Subject Matter Experts in Clean Energy
Wazoku Crowd is looking for your expertise!
Wazoku Crowd is searching for Subject Matter Experts with a background in Clean Technology. This includes, but is not limited to:
- More powerful fuel cells
- Solar powered light sources
- Waste technology optimization
- Innovative sources of sustainable energy
This is an electronic Request-for-Partners (eRFP) Challenge; the Solver will only need to submit a written proposal to be evaluated by the Seeker with the goal of establishing a collaborative partnership.
Occasionally, Wazoku Crowd’s Seekers identify Challenges that are beyond their technical know-how. At the same time, Solvers in the Wazoku Crowd have a wide range of backgrounds and expertise. Therefore, Wazoku Crowd is looking for interested individuals with the time and inclination to assist in all aspects of the Challenge process: from Challenge discovery and design to solution evaluation and development.
This is an electronic Request-for-Partners (eRFP) Challenge. The Solver will write a proposal (about 2-4 pages, including supporting non-confidential information and contact details) to be evaluated by Wazoku Crowd with a goal of establishing a collaborative partnership. Upon completion of the evaluation, Wazoku Crowd may contact selected Solvers directly to work out terms for a collaboration contract. The monetary value of the contract will vary depending on the amount of work to be delivered and the agreed time frame.
[NOTE: Only proposals from Solvers who have the ability to work as a collaboration partner will be considered.]
Submissions to this Challenge must be received by 11:59 PM (US Eastern Time) on March 31, 2023.
Late submissions will not be considered.

What is an eRFP Challenge?
A Wazoku Crowd eRFP Challenge allows Seekers to submit Requests for Proposals for a partner or supplier to provide materials or expertise to solve a business challenge by leveraging the Wazoku Crowd Solver network. This global community includes organizations and individuals, such as contract research organizations, scientists, university researchers, and technology companies.
After a Solver submits an eRFP response, the Seeker evaluates the responses to determine which Solver(s) to contact for further business discussions. With eRFPs, the Solver must not provide any confidential information in the eRFP response. If your eRFP response is selected, you negotiate the terms of the contract (including scope of work, tasks and duration) directly with the Seeker.
This Challenge type does not require Intellectual Property (IP) transfer. However, sometimes Seekers request that certain IP arrangements be made should a partnership be formed.
