How It Works

We connect “Challengers” such as organizations, government bodies, or any entity looking for solutions for their major challenges with the “Solvers” such as a network of experts, inventors, start-ups, etc. within and outside of the industry that can offer diverse perspectives and innovations.

We will launch challenges proposed by challengers on our OIP website. Problem Solvers will submit their innovation and technical solution for the challenges and we will evaluate the solutions with respect to various parameters such as, but not limited to, challenge fitness, novelty, effectiveness, development level (TRL level), strategic relevance to Abu Dhabi and UAE, team expertise, Intellectual Property assets, market needs, business model, etc.

Who You Are

Become a solver

We welcome researchers, innovators, patent owners, and companies or any entity who possess the technical expertise and innovation capabilities to solve the real challenges. You can be an individual, start-up, SME or a larger company. Problem Solvers can have innovative ideas, Proof of Concept (POC), prototype, or a full-fledged technical solution powered with their ability and passion to co-develop and innovate with Problem Owners and/or other parties to convert their ideas into solutions that can address the challenges.
