What is a Challenge
What is an Israel Living Lab Challenge?
A challenge allows organizations or individuals from around the globe (industry, startups, entrepreneurs, academia, governments) to address problems posed by others in an open innovation model. Participants have the opportunity to present solutions and receive prizes.
While similar to grants or calls for proposals, Israel Living Lab’s challenges have distinct characteristics. In grants and contracts, organizations receive proposals, select one, and provide payments. In a challenge, a judging committee evaluates proposed solutions in the form of pitches and selects the winner(s).
Unlike contracts that provide detailed specifications, challenges have narrower requirements. This allows participants to bring their creativity to present innovative solutions. Selected pitches do not need to implement a complete solution, but rather showcase the effectiveness of their proposal through a demonstration in a designated sandbox chosen by the challenge organizer (RFD or PoC).
