InnoCentive Supports Habitat for Humanity in the Capture of Ideas to Improve Housing Quality and Safety in the Philippines

LONDON, Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Open innovation firm InnoCentive is working with the global housing nonprofit Habitat for Humanity, to capture ideas to improve the quality of homes in low-income areas around the world.

More than 1.6 billion people lack adequate shelter, including families in homes with unsafe foundations, putting those people at risk in the event of an earthquake or typhoon. Habitat for Humanity is seeking innovative and cost-effective ways to retrofit such houses in the Philippines, strengthening the structure to withstand typhoon-force winds and high-magnitude earthquakes of up to 7.2 on the Richter scale.

The challenge – Increasing Resilience to Earthquakes and Typhoons for Homes with no Foundations – will run until Jan. 5, 2021 and contributions will be sought from InnoCentive’s global network of nearly 500,000 expert problem “solvers,” comprised of engineers, PhD students, CEOs, startups, material experts, scientists and business leaders. InnoCentive has

It was altogether a more human side to fashion.

Here are the designers who captured the pandemic experience best:
