COMPETITION FOR INNOVATIONS RESPONDING TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC IN INDONESIA
Since 2017, GFA has been implementing the project TRANSFORMASI (Transforming Administration – Strengthening Innovation) on behalf of GIZ in Indonesia. Indonesia’s Ministry of State Apparatus and Bureaucratic Reform (KemenPANRB) has currently requested TRANSFORMASI’s assistance in developing a one-off recognition competition for innovations responding to the Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia. The competition aims at recognizing innovative responses to the pandemic as to inspire others to adopt, adapt or develop these interventions.
Innovations should meet one of three categories: quick wins/fast responses, public knowledge, or social resilience. Implementers can be government agencies at any level, civil society including NGOs, businesses, universities or students, religious organizations, or individuals. Approximately twelve innovations will be selected as winners and will be announced in late August or early September 2020. Innovators should submit their innovations by 30 June, 2020 through a Google form developed by the TRANSFORMASI team.
