What Are the Most Useful Solutions or Services People Are Offering in Support of Those Impacted by COVID-19?
This Challenge is asking Solvers to share detailed examples of any solutions or services they have seen offered by individuals or companies in response to the global Coronavirus pandemic. We have been impressed with how the world has rallied together to bring solutions that can impact globally, nationally, and locally in all manner of ways. Yet there is not a single consolidated source of this valuable information and we want to bridge this gap.
Calling All Solvers: A Chance to Post a COVID-19 Challenge at No Cost
Do you have an idea for the basis of an InnoCentive Challenge? We want to harness the creativity of our Solvers and ask you to propose a COVID-19 Challenge that could help mitigate this global outbreak.
This is an Ideation Challenge with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution.
What Should We Know to Better Treat Coronavirus?
This Challenge is asking InnoCentive Solvers to formulate well-defined problems aimed at advancing our knowledge about Coronavirus. One could think of this as what might we have known that would have allowed us to respond more effectively against COVID-19.
This is an Ideation Challenge run by InnoCentive as Seeker with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution.
Diminishing the Transmission of COVID-19
COVID-19 is readily transmitted via respiratory droplets and we now know that the virus is extremely contagious. Besides physical distancing and improved hygiene (e.g. thorough hand washing), we want to know if you are practicing some behaviors that are NOT widely communicated.
This is an Ideation Challenge.
Frontier Tech 4 COVID Action: Ventilation Systems
Hospitals around the world are grappling with COVID-19. Key to this challenge is making sure our hospitals have the equipment to treat people with respiratory problems.
In this context ventilators are pivotal pieces of medical equipment. But there aren't enough ventilators for the projected number of people who may become ill.
While engineering firms could consider switching some manufacturing to help ramp production of the vital equipment, state of the art ventilators will still take too long to manufacture. That’s why we’re looking to emerging markets for Rapidly Manufactured Ventilation Systems (RMVS). These designs will then be shared with the world to support the fight against COVID-19.
This is an electronic Request-for-Partners (eRFP) Challenge; the Solver will only need to submit a written proposal to be evaluated by the Seeker with the goal of establishing a collaborative partnership.
