Open Innovation Industry Challenges work with global market leaders to define critical industry gaps that need innovative solutions. CWA establishes an industry judging panel to define criteria and success metrics and provide innovators with an opportunity to test and validate their technology concepts with a chance to win prize money and opportunities to engage with potential buyers.
