A NASA "Nyílt innováció" programja

A GSDI Legal and SocioEcon szakbizottsági listáján Kate Lance PhD (Yale Egyetem) adta közre az alábbi közérdekű figyelemfelhívást. Akiket érdekelnek a hasonló lehetőségek, regisztráljanak a GSDI legalul megadott hírleveire. Költségmentes! 
"NASA is seeking researchers to evaluate technology design contests, and to use data analytics to formulate better challenges, according to a new solicitation. 

The agency is attempting to examine its "Open Innovation" programs -- often large, crowdsourced design challenges open to the public. NASA is looking for research on the "empirically-validated science" of open innovation tournaments, such as the "design parameters" that could encourage innovation, among other information.

See notice: NASA Open Innovation Research 
Solicitation Number: NNH15HEOMD002L
Response deadline: September 2, 2015 

The research will apply both to NASA and other government agencies. According to the solicitation for sources, the team NASA selects should be able to, among other tasks:

Provide presentations and training to educate federal employees on using open innovation
Evaluate the architecture, and scoring mechanisms, of open innovation challenges
List plans to use data science to design open innovation challenges 

NASA has been experimenting with open innovation for several years. For instance, since 2012, the space agency has hosted a series of "Space Apps" challenges during which participants use publicly released open data to make apps that could potentially be useful to the agency.
