Since 2005, NASA has been at the forefront of federal agencies using challenge-driven approaches to meaningfully engage the public in the mission of the Agency. A number of NASA offices, Centers, and Mission Directorates are using challenge-driven approaches to solve a variety of problems. There are several NASA programs, pilots, and activities that design and implement different types of challenges. All current opportunities available to the general public through NASA challenges, prize competitions, and crowdsourcing activities and programs are listed on the NASA Solve website: http://www.nasa.gov/solve/. Use this site as your first stop for information and engagement. We want YOU to get involved! These activities have played an important role in stimulating innovation and helping NASA develop innovative solutions. They offer several unique benefits and can result in a variety of valuable outcomes ranging from NASA’s own immediate use of the solutions, development of new viable aerospace industry vendors and even commercialization of new products. These programs include: NASA’s Centennial Challenges’ Program within the Space Technology Mission Directorate directly engages the public at large in the process of advanced technology development that is of value to NASA’s missions and to the aerospace community. Millions of dollars in prizes have been awarded through this program since 2005. NASA’s Center of Excellence for Collaborative Innovation (CoECI) helps NASA and other U.S. government agencies collaborate to generate ideas and solve important problems. By using challenges, we can readily increase our creative capacity and reach by tapping into diverse talent from around the world. As a pioneer and active user of open innovation methods and tools, the NASA CoECI provides organizations with cost-effective and complementary means of accomplishing the Agency mission.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST; www.nist.gov) is a non-regulatory Federal agency within the United States Department of Commerce. Founded in 1901 and now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, NIST is one of the nation’s oldest physical science laboratories. Congress established the agency to remove a major handicap to U.S. industrial competitiveness at the time—a second-rate measurement infrastructure that lagged behind the capabilities of the United Kingdom, Germany, and other economic rivals. Today, NIST measurements support the smallest of technologies—nanoscale devices so tiny that tens of thousands can fit on the end of a single human hair—to the largest and most complex of human-made creations, from earthquake-resistant skyscrapers to wide-body jetliners to global communication networks.

New Concepts for Remote Fish Detection

Ideas and technologies for next generation, novel fish tracking solutions.

Open UntilAug 26, 2015
information

Welcome to the Bureau of Reclamation Prize Competition Center on Challenge.gov, where we hope to find many bright and creative minds with great ideas that will help us solve critical water problems. Check the discussion tab on this site for updates and announcements. 7/27/15 New Concepts for Remote Fish Detection. Submit ideas that will improve fish tracking devices and capabilities. Details: https://www.challenge.gov/challenge/new-concepts-for-remote-fish-detection/  Throughout the year, we will also launch prize competitions that target specific problems within the following three domains:   Water Availability – Water availability is critical to meeting the needs of a growing population and economy.  Water managers face significant challenges in meeting current and future water demands for agriculture, municipal, industrial, Native American, rural, recreation, power generation, and ecosystem needs. Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration – Protecting and restoring aquatic and riparian environments is vital to ensuring that our watersheds are healthy and able to continue providing water supplies that can meet the multitude of competing uses for water in the arid Western United States. Infrastructure Sustainability – A safe, well-maintained, and reliable inventory of dams, pipelines, hydropower generation facilities, canals, and levees is key to making water available to meet the water needs of the Western United States and our Nation as a whole.   The Bureau of Reclamation is an agency of the United States Federal Government with a mission of managing water for multiple uses in the arid Western United States, where elevation and climate are highly variable, ranging from mountains to dessert, and floods to droughts.  Ensuring sustainable and ample supplies of water that are able to meet the spectrum of societal and environmental needs is a mission that intersects multiple Federal agencies.  As such, we are collaborating with other agencies to seek your help finding new and better solutions to those critical problems where we have a shared interest and responsibility. Learn more about Reclamation’s prize goals and give your feedback on the Reclamation Research page.

The Esri Human Health and Climate Change App Challenge

Build Apps Where Community Health, Climate, and Location Matter

Open UntilAug 14, 2015
information

Why Climate and Health? Climate change threatens our health and well-being in many ways, including impacts from increased extreme weather events, wildfire, decreased air quality, threats to mental health, and illnesses transmitted by food, water, and disease-carriers such as mosquitoes and ticks. Some of these health impacts are already underway in the United States. Public health actions, especially preparedness and prevention, can do much to protect people from some of the impacts of climate change– and early action provides the largest health benefits. By responding to climate change, we can improve human health and well-being through actions across many sectors, including energy, agriculture, and transportation. Why a Challenge Series? To find solutions to climate change and health challenges, the Climate and Health Innovation Challenge Series promotes innovative approaches, takes advantage of developing technologies and data resources, and engages a broader community of citizens and scientists. The Series, founded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) at the National Institutes of Health, Esri (a Geographic information system software company), and the HHS Office of Business Management and Transformation (OBMT), provides a unifying framework and communications support to additional US government agencies and other private and public entities interested in sponsoring individual challenges.
