WAITRO INNOVATION AWARD 2020

CALL FOR CHALLENGES AND/OR PROJECT IDEAS

Economic incentives fuel ideas – that is why WAITRO acknowledges project ideas of members initiated by the association and its Open Innovation Hub with monetary prices (25,000 UDS).

THE OPEN INNOVATION HUB FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

SAIRA was born out of the World Association of Industrial and Technological Research Organizations (WAITRO) to foster international collaboration in research and development and to tackle the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. By bringing established researchers together with companies, start-ups, NGOs, government agencies, and impact investors, SAIRA strives to transfer technologies and implement innovative solutions on a global scale.

WAITRO CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

INSTITUTIONAL AND INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY BUILDING

As the largest global network of research and technology organizations, WAITRO is the ideal platform to collaborate, network and share experiences on a global scale. WAITRO aims to strengthen the capacities of individuals and institutions in research enabling best practices to be shared via WAITRO’s linkages. Thus, we enable our members to be more responsive to global challenges and market needs and to participate more effectively in the global research agenda.

WAITRO FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

MOBILITY OF RESEARCHERS

The exchange of people between organizations across boarders and boundaries creates two-way flows of knowledge and expertise, allowing both parties to benefit from new perspectives and insights. The WAITRO Fellowship Program enables researchers and administrative staff of member RTOs to gain experience in an international and intercultural work environment, while creating a Fellows community of experienced and globally connected people that develop innovations for a sustainable future.
