Ratkaisu 100 is an open competition aimed at solving one of Finland’s key future challenges.
Sitra’s two-year challenge prize has three stages.
- We will ask you to define a key social challenge affecting the whole of Finland.
- Teams comprising problem-solvers from all walks of life will be tasked with solving the selected challenge.
- They will compete against each other to develop the best solution.
At the end of the competition, the winners will be awarded one million euros to bring their idea to life.
What challenge must Finland solve? You tell us!
Ratkaisu 100 challenge prize will transform Finland’s problems into resources and common challenges into major opportunities. But which social challenge do we want to solve?
The competition will begin with an open discussion. Let us know what you regard as the key challenge with a view to Finland’s future: it can be a concern, a problem or an opportunity.
The discussion will deepen our understanding of the highlighted challenges. What major development paths are concerned? How did the problem emerge and why? What opportunities have we yet to explore?
Finally, we will jointly select one challenge for which the competitors must find a solution.
Will you be the one who finds the solution? Put a team together.
During the second stage, in autumn 2016, we will convene the teams with the sharpest ideas to work together on solving the selected challenge.
Anyone can become a problem-solver. Teams of people from all walks of life will develop new ways to tackle the challenge in question.
Whose solution will win? Follow the competition.
During the competition stage, in 2017, the teams will be assisted in developing their idea into a practical social innovation. The solutions will also be subject to a real-life test: the developed ideas will be trialled and further developed during a piloting stage.
And then? Walking the talk.
The future is being created today. To make sure the solutions get off the drawing board, the winners will be awarded one million euros to bring their idea to life.
It is time to make things happen – together.
