At this event, you’ll get to learn about IMDA’s new Open Innovation Platform – a virtual crowdsourcing platform that matches challenges of Problem Owners to Problem Solvers. The OIP will be going live with the first Innovation Call with more than 10 challenges from different Problem Owners in just a few days.
