#DigiInventors Challenge2021

What is the #DigiInventorsChallenge ?

The #DigiInventorsChallenge, in association with Glasgow Warriors and the Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre (DHI) is now entering its fifth year and is going from strength to strength.

We're on a mission to find new ways to help Scotland's and UAE's young people keep active, staying healthy and happy, now and in the future.

The challenge itself is very simple - we want you to identify health and care challenges that you face on a daily basis (it could be friends or family living with diabetes, asthma, Alzheimer's or something completely different) and ask you to come up with a digital idea that could potentially be transformed into a real digitial solution.


When is it ?

The #DigiInventorsChallenge takes place between August 2021 and December 2021.

This year we're going global and will be running a parallel competition with UAE's young people and will be showcasing both our Scottish and Dubai winners as part of Scotland's contribution to Expo 2020 Dubai between 31st January and February 2022.

Before then we will have our 2-day virtual bootcamp, our virtual final (where you'll present to our panel of expert judges) and the opportunity to work with our partners to develop your winning idea into a Minimal Viable Project (MVP).
