InnoCentive is currently inviting proposals for the Satellite-Based Remote Sensing for Smallholder Farms Challenge to provide materials or expertise to solve a business challenge by leveraging the InnoCentive Solver network.
This is an electronic Request-for-Partners (eRFP) Challenge. The Solver will write a preliminary proposal (about 2-4 pages, including supporting non-confidential information and contact details) to be evaluated by the Seeker with a goal of establishing a collaborative partnership.
Upon completion of the evaluation, the Seeker may contact selected Solvers directly to work out terms for a collaboration contract. The monetary value of the contract will vary depending on the amount of work to be delivered and the agreed time frame.
This global community includes organizations and individuals, such as contract research organizations, scientists, university researchers, and technology companies.
After a Solver submits an eRFP response, the Seeker evaluates the responses to determine which Solver(s) to contact for further business discussions. With eRFPs, the Solver must not provide any confidential information in the eRFP response. If your eRFP response is selected, you negotiate the terms of the contract directly with the Seeker.
Smallholder farms are vital producers of food for the world. These farms are often less than an acre in size and are farmed by resident families. Located world-wide, most are located in developing regions with limited resources and limited or no access to advances occurring in agriculture that are available to large farms in other regions of the world. To support these farmers in making the cultivation of their fields more efficient and sustainable, advances in automation and digitalization must be made accessible and affordable. One route to bring these advances is through field analysis and monitoring via satellite-based remote sensing.
The Seeker for this Challenge, is searching for technology providers to help them bring such advances to smallholder farms in Asia.
NOTE: Only proposals from Solvers who have the ability to work as a collaboration partner will be considered.
