Aid Innovation Challenge

The AidEx Aid Innovation Challenge aims to find the next big invention to impact the delivery of aid. 

The Aid Innovation Challenge is an exciting opportunity for those with a unique idea to help others. This award is open to design agencies, engineering companies and also individuals - anyone who has a new concept or product that will save or improve lives. 

It is a unique chance to pitch life-changing inventions to a panel of experts from the sector live at AidEx.

The 2017 winner was Zéphyr Solar Balloon - a French start-up developing solar balloons that help bring energy and services quickly to isolated sites. 

Entries for the 2018 award will be open in early 2018.
