National Science Foundation Wireless Innovation Network Challenges

Powered by Mozilla, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Wireless Innovation Network Challenges seek designs and prototypes for wireless technologies that will help connect people to the internet in some of the most challenging of circumstances: after a disaster or in areas without sufficient connectivity. Two million dollars in prize money is available for winning design concepts and prototypes submitted by US-based entrants in one of two separate challenges: Off-The Grid Internet Challenge and Smart-Community Networks Challenge. Submissions are due October 2017. Winners will be announced in fall 2017. NSF is particularly interested in teams made up of a diverse group of individuals that may include youth, community members/organizations, technologists and researchers who are interested in working together to solve these problems for their communities. The challenges' launch event is on April 22, 2017. Register for the event to learn more.
