Box

As Steward share and secure your ideas, find teammates, co-create and develop together. Innovators learn from each other and - by a reputation system - are encouraged to mentor others and engage the public. An extensive platform community also opens up the opportunity for developers and researchers to talk to each other or even to develop products and ideas together. Similar approaches are known as Open Innovation and Open Source.

The Box facilitates communication and exchange between innovators and towards the public. It's the place where matching of team members and purposes takes place. The Box contains a repository of reports and data about successful innovation, failure analysis, and development cycles. Transparency allows a constructive perspective and efficient recycling of failed innovation to become a new 'cradle' perhaps in a new field. Talents get attracted to work on what is most important and urgent on the planet.

What ideas are on the platform and who works on these and when?

Browse based on: time (date of filing, date of expiration), place (global, local), team members, ideas, rating of content based on scientific standards, impact tracing or impact perception

You may follow a team or an idea through notifications, so that you stay up-to-date.

Secure your idea on the platform: as an idea owner and based on the assessment in the Poll, you may set yourself a certain time limit by which it is realistic to implement the idea. If the idea fails, it gets released.

The number of your registered ideas and the engagement in your own and others' projects is limited within a certain time frame.

Here is a Wiki-list of currently unsuccessful and not actively followed ideas, including insights to all publicly accessible results of tests, analyses, and surveys, as well as impact tracing or impact perception. Ideas for the recycling of the ideas and resources are also collected here (for example, what happens to prototypes? Are there any other disciplines interested in the idea?). Explorative reports of external projects are welcome here as well.

Here is a list of former idea owners, visionaries and investors, whom you can contact as mentors in specific fields. Also stories, backgrounds, talks, and teaching materials by the mentors can be read here.
