Fridays for Innovation

Within three weeks of pandemic in Europe, more than 80,000 designers, engineers, and scientists participated in online hackathons to build thousand of solutions for the pandemic.

Unfortunately, most of these solutions go to waste, due to lack of support and coordination, a problem called "design waste". Fridays for Innovation is a collective intelligence movement, where creatives gather to build, share and remix solutions for challenges, constantly improving the work from previous Fridays. The project is supported by a digital platform, where users share their work, which feeds a highly interconnected database, clustering similar ideas.
