The Inspire Challenge
The CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture has announced “The Inspire Challenge” which calls upon partners, universities, and others to use CGIAR data to create innovative pilots projects that can be scaled up.
The winning teams will receive $100,000 to put their ideas into practice and the teams will be given 12 months to implement small-scale proof of concepts pilots to demonstrate viability.
“We’re looking for novel approaches that democratize data-driven insights to inform local, national, regional, and global policies and applications in agriculture and food security in real time; helping people–especially smallholder farmers and producers–to lead happier and healthier live” cites the call announcement.
The deadline for applications is the 20th of August 2018.
