Submit Your Ideas

The Ideas Competition will be open through January 31st. Your responses will help scope the topics for the Civic Innovation Challenge. After you’ve responded, check back with us and maybe even offer another idea.


The Civic Innovation Challenge is focused on data, technology, social science, and analytics solutions that address priorities facing cities and communities of all types. Your responses should reflect challenges that are priorities for governments, communities, and non-profits that seek to leverage scientific discovery to improve policies, programs, and outcomes for their residents and constituents. Responses should address challenges in one or more of the topic areas: Equity & Access, Resilience, Mobility, and Built Environment. We are looking to capture your ideas for challenges faced by a range of communities, and for which there may be a range of possible solutions.
