The 4th edition of the MOPC successfully wraps up

On June 16 the Finale of the 4rth edition of the Monaco Ocean Protection Challenge (MOPC) took place at the Oceanographic Museum.

As every year, Monaco Impact had the pleasure to organize this students’ competition in partnership with the Oceanographic Institute and IUM. As of January, the Prince Albert II Foundation joined as co-organizer and a start-up category was also introduced.

With every edition, the competition have been growing, and in 2021, over 100 students/young entrepreneurs registered!

The Monaco Impact Prize (a cheque of 5,000 euros) was awarded to Wype, a British startup that tackles the (taboo) subject of wet wipes used in the toilets with its eco-friendly gel alternative.
