January 1, 2014

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.

NASA@work

Challenge Types

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 NASA@work

  • 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.

NASA@work Timeline

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
