We are looking for new Working Groups to fund!

The RIOS Institute invites proposals for Working Groups that will function as innovation sandboxes or think tank incubators. Accepted proposals will receive a $2000 budget. Participants will bring new ideas and address challenges as they develop a tangible product aligned with the RIOS mission. We are accepting proposals on a rolling basis. Go here to submit your Working Group proposal.
