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 Department of Homeland Security has a vital mission: to secure the nation from the many threats we face. This requires the dedication of more than 240,000 employees in jobs that range from aviation and border security to emergency response, from cybersecurity analyst to chemical facility inspector. Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear – keeping America safe.  Our duties are wide-ranging, but our goal is clear: a safer, more secure America, which is resilient against terrorism and other potential threats. The vision of homeland security is to ensure a homeland that is safe, secure, and resilient against terrorism and other hazards. Three key concepts form the foundation of our national homeland security strategy designed to achieve this vision: Security, Resilience, and Customs and Exchange. In turn, these key concepts drive broad areas of activity that the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review (QHSR) process defines as homeland security missions. These missions are enterprise-wide, and not limited to the Department of Homeland Security. These missions and their associated goals and objectives tell us in detail what it means to prevent, to protect, to respond, and to recover, as well as to build in security, to ensure resilience, and to facilitate customs and exchange.

Welcome to the Bureau of Reclamation‘s Water Prize Competition Center on Challenge.gov.   We are seeking bright and creative minds with great ideas that will help us solve critical water problems. Throughout the year,  Reclamation launches 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. We are seeking bright and creative minds with great ideas that will help us solve critical water problems. For information for current and upcoming competitions, Examples of Successful Reclamation Competitions to Date Reduction to Practice Challenge: Sub-Seasonal Forecast Rodeo About: Reclamation and NOAA have teamed up to find solvers willing to submit forecasts of temperature and precipitation for one year, competing in real-time against other teams, as well as official forecasts from NOAA Details: http://www.usbr.gov/research/challenges/upcoming/index.html Grand Challenge: More Water – Less Concentrate About: As the demand for fresh water increases, the need to develop new water supplies from non-traditional water sources, such as saline (brackish) groundwater and surface water using desalination technologies continues to grow Details: http://www.usbr.gov/research/challenges/upcoming/index.html Preventing Rodent Burrows in Earthen Embankments About: Asking for ways to stop and prevent rodents from burrowing into earthen embankments of dams, canals, and levees Details: https://www.challenge.gov/challenge/preventing-rodent-burrows-in-earthen-embankments/ Status: Under Evaluation Downstream Fish Passage at Tall Dams About: Seeking new ideas for successful and cost-effective downstream passage for migrating juvenile fish to help recover threatened and endangered species such as salmon and steelhead Details: https://www.challenge.gov/challenge/downstream-fish-passage-at-tall-dams/ Status: Awarded Detecting Soil Movement in Earthen Embankments About: Soliciting innovative methods for detecting soil particle movement both directly or indirectly and earlier in earthen structures and foundations Details: https://www.challenge.gov/challenge/detecting-soil-movement-in-earthen-embankments/ Status: Awarded 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.
