Challenge 22 is looking for ideas from across the Arab world. Ideas to increase sustainability and promote health & safety, and ideas that harness the power of technology to connect every corner of the world.

About Challenge 22

Challenge 22, an innovation award launched in 2015 by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), promotes a culture of innovation in the Middle East and attracts entrepreneurs, scientists and pioneers from across the Arab world. It showcases ideas that can contribute towards the hosting and organisation of major events like the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™, while building a sustainable, economically diverse future for the region.

The second cycle of Challenge 22, which runs from 27 September 2016 to 11 May 2017, aims to inspire innovative ideas that translate into practical events solutions in four key areas: sustainability, health & safety, the internet of things and tourism experience. This cycle, Challenge 22 has also now expanded its reach beyond the six Gulf countries to include Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia.

The SC, which organises this innovation award, has always believed that young people in the Arab world have great creativity and potential. Challenge 22 will ensure that when the world is watching the Middle East in 2022, Arab innovation is in the spotlight.

Individuals and groups (of up to four people) who propose the most innovative ideas will win prizes of USD 15,000 and receive mentoring from leading scientists and researchers in the region.

Those with the very best ideas – the ones with the greatest potential to contribute to an amazing tournament in 2022 – will receive up to USD 100,000 in additional funding to develop their ideas to proof of concept stage.
