Challenge: please indicate the challenge you wish to address, if there are more challenges, please indicate no more than 3, however the fewer challenges (ideally 1), the more we understand you are dedicated to the challenge you select. The rest of the questions ask to relate to only 1 challenge so relate it to the project you are proposing (which will have only 1 challenge at its core even if it connects multiple challenges). See all ReDefine 2024 challenges here.
Why should you be chosen to be a 2024 ReDefiner? Make sure you explain
why you are a preferred candidate to others
what you will bring to this program (expertise, experience, knowledge, skills)
What is your connection to the challenge you are applying for
DO NOT describe how this program will benefit you, we are interested in how you will be an asset to the program and projects.
I wish to be a...:
Project Leader: If you want to lead a project and have a project idea, please indicate "Project Leader"
Project Team Member: If you wish to be a team member on a project where you are not the leader (are not required to submit your own project idea and will not be the central contact person for the project if selected), please select "Project Team Member"
If you select "Project Leader" you are required to submit a project idea - it must be within the ReDefine challenge you selected.
If you'd like to apply as a Project Leader but would also consider being a Team Member if your project doesn't have the required team members, does not meet criteria or does not get selected, please indicate being both a Leader and Team Member in the next application stage when creating your profile in the Directory.
If you selected "Team Member", you will not be asked to submit a project and the next section will not appear.
Preliminary project idea: Note that this is the very initial stage of the application process and we will not be evaluating your project or project idea - you will provide details about the project/project idea at the next stage of the application process (in the ReDefine Directory) and it will only be evaluated if submitted (in full compliance with criteria and with a minimum team) at the last (third) state of the application process. We do not take the following information about your project/project idea into consideration at this stage, therefore we urge you to submit this form ASAP in order to find Team Members or Leaders.
Focus on your solution when answering questions - we are not asking for a general overview of the state of affairs of the subject matter/challenge or your view, we are looking for answers relating directly to your proposed approach, solution, project.
