Weatherhead student wins World Economic Forum innovation prizeDAVOS —Weatherhead student Dr. Joseph Adelegan, PhD, has been awarded a 2009 Technology Pioneers Award by The World Economic Forum for his Nigeria-based project and business Cows to Kilowatts Partnership Limited.

Cows to Kilowatts is a sustainable venture that turns slaughterhouse waste into energy for home consumption. Its success in Nigeria and its potential impact in the developing world made it one of 34 winners among more than 320 nominations from around the world.

The Technology Pioneers Award recognizes businesspeople who are innovators of the highest caliber, whose technologies will have a deep impact on business and society.

The Cows to Kilowatts Partnership Limited from Nigeria was selected in the "energy and smart grid solution" group and joins the impressive list of previous Technology Pioneers, including 23andme, Amyris Biotechnologies, Dr Reddy Laboratories, Google, Gridpoint, Infosys, Kaspersky Lab, Mozilla Corporation and Nanosolar.

Adelegan's work will be celebrated with the other champions at the World Economic Forum Annual Summit in Davos, Switzerland between January 27, 2009 and February 1, 2009.

Adelegan is currently enrolled in the Executive Doctor of Management (EDM) program at the Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University, and has worked with Weatherhead's Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit (BAWB). Among many other activities, BAWB serves as Secretariat to the UN Global Compact US Network.
