The objective of this challenge is to find ways to improve parental involvement in young people’s learning. You do not need to be an education expert to contribute to this challenge – all ideas are welcome!
This is an Ideation challenge with a guaranteed award of $8,000.
Parental engagement is a key positive driver of young people’s educational achievement and fulfillment. This challenge seeks ways to increase parental involvement in young people’s learning in ways that go beyond traditional activities such as choosing a school, taking part in school governance, or through events such as parents’ evenings. Crucial learning takes place outside of the school and ways to increase parental involvement in young people’s wider learning are welcomed.

This challenge is sponsored by the UK National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA). NESTA is a non-profit organization supporting initiatives to increase innovation in public services by directly involving service users from design through to delivery.

What is an InnoCentive Ideation™ Challenge?

An InnoCentive Ideation™ Challenge is a broad question formulated to obtain access to new ideas, similar to a global brainstorm for producing a breakthrough idea or market survey which may include ideas for a new product line, a new commercial application for a current product, or even a viral marketing idea to recruit new customers. Ideation™ Challenge submissions are typically about two written pages, and Seekers receive a non-exclusive, perpetual license to use all submissions.

In an Ideation™ Challenge, Solvers may:

  • Submit ideas of their own
  • Submit third party information that they have the right to use and further the authority to convey that right and the right to use and develop derivative works to Seekers
  • Submit information considered in the public domain without any limitations on use

Solvers should not reveal any confidential information in their submissions. Often the Ideation™ Challenge will be followed by one or more of the other three Challenge types to further develop the ideas and gain Intellectual Property protection when the concept has been well-defined.
