Culture of Innovation

Help us strengthen and perpetuate a culture of innovation within USAF by improving workforce agility and breaking down barriers to change.

WE NEED YOUR INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS!

This challenge, one of several related to the Base of the Future initiative, aims to strengthen and perpetuate a culture of innovation within USAF by improving workforce agility and breaking down barriers to change. Currently, the adoption of new technology is slow and presents a significant challenge for USAF, often frustrating Airmen who are readily trying to drive change. We are looking to create new ways to increase community engagement among Airmen and develop education and training that supports enterprise-wide team development. Join us to improve USAF's technology standards and eliminate as many obstacles as we can to benefit our warfighters.

What's in it for you?

USAF and AFWERX possess innovation funding to designate towards exploring viable solutions and partnerships to further strengthen the Air Force. USAF has prototype funding available for individuals or companies who propose solutions to this specific challenge. Expert evaluators will carefully examine compelling challenge solutions presented within this crowdsourcing platform, and the best solutions could lead to additional prototyping, R&D and production contracts to be granted after the initial award. Your participation could lead to official recognition for you or your company and the chance to work alongside the Air Force and other DoD agencies to see your concept mature into impactful real-life implementation!
