Introducing the #DigiInventors Challenge

Launched in 2017, it has grown year on year, attracting more young people, more schools, and more partners. The challenge itself is very simple – we want our young people to identify daily health and care challenges and come up with an idea that could potentially be transformed into a real digital solution.

Public notice

Our #DigiInventors Challenge 2022 - Secondary School Edition is now closed.
Please check back in 2023 for details of our next challenge.

When is it?

The #DigiInventors Challenge takes place between August and December.

We've partnered with City of Glasgow College, Heriot-Watt University Dubai and dressCode to create exciting resources to help with your teaching, learning, and ideas. We have a PowerPoint presentation and teaching resources to help you make it part of classroom activities!

Like previous years, we're running a parallel challenge with the UAE's young people and will be showcasing both our Scottish and UAE winners to a global audience.

But before then we'll have our:

  • Bootcamp - where you'll take your idea and attend a number of specialist business sessions to help develop your idea business case
  • Final - where you'll present to our panel of expert judges
  • The opportunity to work with our partners to develop your winning idea into a prototype/ Minimal Viable Project (MVP).
