The Virtual Innovation Society is removing complexity and empowering people to co-create innovative solutions to solve our most difficult problems. We match PEOPLE to virtual teams, a PLAN, and problem solving PROCESS. We match vteams to grand challenge competitions and other complex problem solving challenges. There is a multitude of talented, unemployed, and unaffiliated scientists, engineers, technologists, researchers, returning U.S. Veterans, retired professionals, and students in transition that want to work with other people to co-create solutions to our grand challenges AND there are numerous competitions and prizes focused specifically on developing solutions for the grand challenges and global problems. A short list of competitions: National Academy of Engineering Grand Challenges Program, National Academy of Engineering Grainger Challenge for Sustainability, National Academy of Engineering Charles Stark Draper Prize, X Prize Foundation, Lemelson-MIT Program, Buckminster Fuller Challenge, Planetary Society Projects, DARPA Grand Challenge, Dell Social Innovation Competition, IEEE Student Competition Program, IEEE Change the World Program, NASA Grand Challenge Projects, Office of Naval Research STEM Grand Challenge, NIH Center for Biomedical Computing, INDEX Design Award Program, Humanity+ Gada Award, Kaufman Foundation, Gates Foundation Grand Challenges in Global Health, Thiel Foundation, and Challenge.gov.
