HWC Tech Challenge Announcements

The Human Wildlife Conflict Tech Challenge closed on the 12th of September, 2017. Thank you for all your submissions and enthusiasm over the past months!

In total, we received 47 proposals. Entries included 22 proposals answering the elephant case and 24 for the carnivore case (18 for the tiger case and 7 for the polar bear case). Proposals came from 13 different countries across the globe - it is fantastic to see such a widespread interest in the subject and minds coming together to find solutions! 

These proposals are now under review by an independent panel of HWC and technology experts. We will announce the two winners on the 20th October, 2017. Until that time, we will continue to keep you informed throughout this exciting process here in this announcement thread in our dedicated WILDLABS HWC Tech Challenge Community Group. 

Beyond the challenge, if you are interested in helping create new solutions for Human-Wildlife Conflict, we encourage you to get involved with our Human-Wildlife Conflict group here on WILDLABS.  

Best of luck to all our applicants!
