NASA to help DHS with crowdsourcing

The Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate is expanding its efforts to crowdsource innovation through a partnership with NASA’s Center of Excellence for Collaborative Innovation.

Partnering with NASA to develop new technologies through publicly crowdsourced prize competitions lets DHS S&T leverage the resources of CoECI, which was established to assist other federal agencies in the use of crowdsourced challenges to solve tough, mission-critical problems.

“The partnership allows us to broaden our reach to others in the innovation community, that we wouldn’t otherwise have been able to reach,” DHS spokesman John Verrico told GCN.

 S&T’s partnership with NASA’s CoECI will provide access to end-to-end solutions on all aspects of implementing challenge-based prize competitions from problem definition to challenge design and administration, DHS officials said.
