WEBINAR: Navy Advanced Manufacturing Prize Challenge

Friday, May 14, 2021
11:00 – 11:40am EDT
Featuring: Ben Bouffard, US Navy (CIV) NAVSEA SYSCOM and Scott Storms, US Navy (CIV) NAVSEA SYSCOM.

Prizes and challenges are competitions among individuals, communities, government entities, businesses, institutions, or non-profit organizations to achieve defined goals in a defined timeframe. They use cash prizes to reach beyond the “usual suspects” and increase the number of problem-solvers addressing a critical issue.

In early May, 401 Tech Bridge, in collaboration with the NavalX Northeast Tech Bridge, will launch a Navy prize challenge with an advanced manufacturing topic and a prize of $30,000. The prize challenge will be hosted on the InnoCentive platform and Challenge.gov. The virtual kick-off will be on May 14 and feature:

  • Overview of the problem, and the challenge, from Navy technical points of contact
  • Introduction to InnoCentive, the prize challenge platform
  • Opportunity for Q/A with the technical points of contact
