Idea Lab is open for bright ideas

JHU's Idea Lab crowdsourcing website has returned with three challenges for the 2017 cycle.

President Daniels' Ten by Twenty Challenge draws inspiration from the second priority of the 10x2020 plan: individual excellence. The Diversity Leadership Council will accept proposals for its annual Diversity Innovation Grants. And the JHU Office of Sustainability will support the top environmental idea with its Eco-Smart Acorn Grant.

Students, faculty, and staff can sign into the Idea Lab website with their JHED IDs to submit their ideas through April 19. Online voting will take place April 26 through May 4. Funding will go to the teams that receive the most votes to implement their proposals, and additional projects will be chosen by a committee to receive funding. Additional parameters specific to each of the challenges are outlined on the website.

The Idea Lab is online. More information is on the Hub.
