LAUNCH Food is thrilled to request global proposals following our recent VR/AR Reality Hack in Canberra, AU. The Hack created a space to ideate around the capacity of 360° video, virtual reality, augmented reality and gamification to strengthen public health, social impact and awareness building efforts in developing countries. In collaboration with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s innovationXchange, we are looking to fund up to two prototypes on the following themes:
1. Heroes and Legends
Aim: to impact health and nutrition outcomes within targeted sites in the Pacific through experiments using emerging communications tools.
2. Malnutrition as a Global Development Challenge
Aim: to impact awareness and understanding of malnutrition as a development problem, particularly acute malnutrition in the Indo-Pacific.
For more information, please see:
Background research, including key takeaways from our interviews with stakeholders in the Pacific and Southeast Asia, to help guide you.
The call for proposals closes on the 16th of January, 2017. Apply here— if you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, we are also welcoming contributions to LAUNCH Food! In partnership with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the U.S. Agency for International Development, LAUNCH is calling for innovations that will contribute to improving health outcomes through the food system. If you are working on a supply- or demand-side innovation that will increase availability of and access to affordable, nutritious, desirable, and sustainable food, we want to hear from you. The LAUNCH Food challenge is open through 7 December, 2016. Learn more at launch.org/food.
