Tris Dyson is Managing Director of Nesta Challenges, a hub that aims to design challenge prizes that help solve pressing problems that lack solutions. Tris has led Nesta Challenges from its origins as a Nesta experiment to being a global hub for expertise and insight on challenge prizes.
Innovation lessons of past decades have fallen by the wayside. Challenges offer better value for money, more diversity of approaches, and a means to shape markets ripe for development – and could provide the moonshot advances that society needs.
Wanted: great ideas from innovative organisations, charities and tech companies keen to help more vulnerable workers in their jobs and finances – Nesta’s £2.8m Rapid Recovery Challenge opens for applications this week.
