UNICEF Innovation is looking for startups developing new – ‘frontier’ – technologies to help it improve the lives of disabled and impaired children living in some of the world’s poorest regions.
The charity’s innovation fund provides financial and technical support to innovative young companies working in areas like augmented reality, machine learning and artificial intelligence. It works ‘to quickly assess, fund and grow open-source solutions that can improve children’s lives’.
This call is for those ‘building the next generation of open source augmentative and alternative communication technologies’. Applications are open until 15 July 2017.
