NASA@work is an agency-wide, virtual platform that seeks to increase innovation by fostering collaboration within our community through the contribution of interactive discussions and the submission of solutions to posted challenges.
Challenges in the early stages of development are well suited for the
NASA@work platform. Examples include:
- Generating new ideas - solvers provide high volume brainstorming power
- Developing new concepts - solvers help identify new ideas/technologies
- Adding structure, definition (i.e., fine-tuning) a challenge or problem – solvers lend agency wide expertise to assist
- Looking to increase access to information and/or confirm you have all research and information on a specific challenge/problem – solvers give you access to siloed or undocumented knowledge base
NASA@work for You
[image-51] You have two ways to capture the power of
- Self-Serve Option: no cost! You work with the Program Champion to develop and refine your challenge. InnoCentive support team provides a cursory review of challenge and provides high-level feedback.
- Full-Serve Option: Contact the CoECI team for details.
Much depends on the challenge itself. A good gauge to estimate is approximately 9 to 10 weeks:
- Challenge Preparation: 2-3 weeks
- Challenge Open/Active: 4-6 weeks
- Challenge Evaluation: 2 weeks
