Fundación Chile: Brilla
BRILLA is an open innovation program in solar energy that aims to accelerate the development of the Chilean industry, supporting suppliers that offer the technological solutions needed to meet the innovation challenges faced by the energy industry.
Brilla connects both supply and demand with the innovation, financing and entrepreneurship ecosystem associated with the energy industry to correct information, transaction cost, and coordination asymmetries.
BRILLA aims to:
- Facilitate and stimulate an interaction between the supply of solutions and the challenges of demand (reduction of transaction costs).
- Inform the supply about the requirements and needs of the demand (challenges) for them to create innovative solutions adapted to those needs (reduction of information asymmetries).
- Strengthen and coordinate the Chilean innovation ecosystem around energy development.
- Contribute to the transition to a clean, sophisticated and competitive economy, focusing on the development of suppliers and innovative, high-quality solutions for the global energy industry.
The SHINE program was created as a public good project, financed by the Ministry of Economy, supported by the Innova Corfo committee and the Solar and Energy Innovation Committee.
