OUR VALUES

OPTIMISM

Although complex challenges exist in the world, we believe they can be solved.

OPEN MINDED

No single individual, organization, sector or industry can solve these challenges alone. Progress must be made only together, bringing the solution providers closer to the people who identified the issues

HUMAN CENTRIC SOLUTIONS

Solutions must start with the people they are designed for, end with them and involve them.

INCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGY

Technology should address economic, cultural and social barriers to create opportunities for all.

OUR HISTORY

The Inartis Challenges program was launched by the Inartis Foundation as early as 2010. The challenges were intended to provide partner companies with a favorable context for the expression of the creative capacity of their employees. It soon became clear that opening the program to everyone would capitalize on the creative capacity of people to address the societal and technical issues we face.
A natural offshoot of the Inartis Foundation’s commitment to open innovation and our vision of ensuring that everyone has a place at the problem-solving table. The first “public” challenge was launched with the support of Debiopharm in the field of patient care.

Over the past years, thanks to its partners, more than 15 Inartis Challenges (internal and external) have been conducted. More than 1,500 projects have been evaluated and around 100 have been supported. Enjoy your visit to our site which summarizes this adventure and above all is there to encourage you to join our community of “solution providers”.

They Trust Us

More than a dozen challenges were launched hand in hand between the Inartis Foundation and industrial partners. One watchword: respond quickly to a specific need, using collective intelligence.
