The second edition of the ITU Innovation Challenges, co-organized by EQUALS and INPUT Hungary, ran from 4 May to 31 August 2020, receiving submissions from 26 countries.
The winners were announced on 17 September. A jury of 12, with six external experts and six ITU experts, selected the winning ideas. A total of 20 winners— 12 women and 8 men—have been chosen across the three categories.
Winners will go through a boot camp in early October and participate in the Global Innovation Forum during the final week of the month. Twenty-five mentors from 18 countries, will be supporting this cohort during the bootcamp.
