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.
