Solve or post an innovation challenge
Complex problems are increasingly being solved in innovative ways, with the most promising solution or expertise required often difficult to identify upfront. This is where the Innovation Challenge marketplace can help.
Rather than needing to know the research expertise they require, users can instead put forward details of the problem they are looking to solve, with experts then able to propose a solution. The Innovation Challenges marketplace also aggregates relevant opportunities published elsewhere, bringing them into a central place so potential problem solvers can find them more easily.
Challenges posted on the platform are automatically flagged with relevant experts most likely to have a viable solution. This means industry and government get their challenges in front of the right experts, and researchers get visibility of key end user challenges and priorities.
If you have an innovation challenge you need solved, please get in touch with the details and we will list it on the platform. If you don’t currently appear in Expert Connect but would like to be notified of relevant challenges that you may have the expertise to solve, please subscribe to our challenge alerts.
Do you have a challenge that you'd like solved? Rather than searching for the expertise you require, you can put forward details of the problem you're looking to solve. By listing it directly on the Innovation Challenges marketplace, relevant experts can be notified of the opportunity and encouraged to put forward a solution. Please email us with the details of your challenge.
The Innovation Challenges marketplace also aggregates relevant opportunities into a central place, making it easier for potential problem solvers to find them. Have we missed a challenge that should be listed on the website? If so, please send us a link to the challenge so we can add it.
No, it is free to list (or republish) a challenge on our platform.
Of course, we encourage everyone who’s eligible to put forward a solution! Each challenge will list the eligibility criteria around who can apply. You can also subscribe to challenge alerts to be notified when new opportunities are listed.
