@ TRANSYLVANIA MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL 2020 

The call for entries for the TMF 2020 Mountain Innovation Competition is open! Submit your project and describe the innovative elements that your project, solution, service or product brings to the mountain sports and activities.

Transylvania Mountain Innovation Award, founded in 2018, aims to promote innovations among outdoor activities and mountain related communities.

The rationale: Technology advances, innovative materials used for various sports equipment, innovations that increase energy autonomy in hardly accessible environments, solutions for environment conservation and protection, the digitization of touristic services, social innovation projects – all these have a major impact on mountain outdoor activities: sport, leisure & tourism, education, art and science.

That is why, each year we select a lead theme that aggregates concepts, ideas and projects. The theme for 2020 is: VERTICAL STORIES, and this is an open call for the community to enlist their projects in this unique competition.
