Enel is seeking creative new ideas for a captivating and smart data visualization solution to manage and represent the most important metrics and data from online conversations. Submissions must focus on data visualization and must include mock-ups, screen shots, or graphic representations of the proposed visualization in order to be eligible for an award.

This is an Ideation Challenge with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution.


In today’s increasingly connected world it is vital to monitor social media and web activity related to specific events in order to understand the scope of the impact of the communication efforts. Choosing the most relevant information and metrics to monitor and presenting conversations using impactful visualizations is equally important. Enel is seeking original new ideas for both the information and metrics to be used and the way in which they should be presented visually. Enel is seeking ideas that go beyond the basic or obvious ones like number of conversations/tweets, reach, engagement, etc. and represent truly unique ideas. Submissions will include detailed description, feasibility study, and mock-ups of display screens with interactive simulation of the visualization. Submissions lacking mock-ups or graphic representations of the proposed visualization will not be eligible for an award.

This Challenge provides contribution to the following SDGs:

• SDG 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation

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.
