Collaboratorium at Venture Center

The collaborative innovation platform for problem identification, problem definition and surveying existing solutions.

About

The Collaboratorium is a platform for collaborative innovation. It focuses on one critical aspect of the innovation process problem identification, definition and refinement. The underlying philosophy hope and assumptions are that

  • Detailed and insightful problem definitions which are openly available to all will help and excite a large number of people to attempt solutions.
  • People will be willing to share problem definitions with others relating to the most pressing and difficult-to-solve problems of society especially those affecting the most underprivileged and/or those with a weak market pull.
  • An opportunity to engage with others in refining and sharpening the need definition, and also find potential partners who are equally excited about the opportunity.

Basic rules:

  • Each Collaboratorium shall have an Editor and one or more Authors.
  • Participation as Editors and Authors s by Invitation only.
  • Anybody interested in contributing information can write to Editors.
  • The Authors should only put up non-confidential information.
  • The Collaboratorium is currently only for discussion problem definitions and NOT for suggesting new ideas and solutions.

Current:
