Stats on Innovation Challenges: Two years of use
It has been two years since we first released Innovation Challenges. If you're curious to understand how these have been used by project teams during this time then have a look at this summary report.
Innovation Challenges: what’s next?
We're improving the Innovation Challenges experience for project teams. Here are the highlights:
- We're improving existing Innovation Challenges by adding additional guidance and more detail while also creating Submission Templates;
- We're retiring those challenges that have already been integrated into Green Star – Design & As Built - don't worry, Legacy project teams will still be able to use these via 'credit substitution'; and
- We've created three new Innovation Challenges for project team to use, including a couple that were created in partnership with other organisations.
