HumAInity Open Innovation Challenge by Accenture

LET’S IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH IN THE NORDIC REGION

Although the Nordic region is ranked high on the global happiness rankings, 12% of the population are still suffering from loneliness, while stress, anxiety and burnout are also on the rise. One of the biggest reasons is the increasing challenges placed on our mental well-being in today’s world, from work to home life.

Mental health conditions are on the rise

Mental health conditions have become a major challenge across the Nordics in recent years, manifesting itself as increased experiences of social exclusion, depression and other mental well-being challenges. And, many also suffer from loneliness and a lack of a close friend, which gets more critical with age.

How might technology help?

While digitalization and increased screen time are often seen as contributing to poor mental health, within Accenture we strongly believe that new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) can also be part of solving mental well-being challenges.

HELP IMPROVE MENTAL HEALTH AND WIN UP TO €20,000

That’s why we are launching the HumAInity Open Innovation Challenge to help tackle these issues together. So, if your idea or current innovation can help solve our key question: How can AI enhance and empower mental well-being? you or your team can win up to €20,000 to help develop or scale your idea, and help improve mental health.

How: Submit details about your idea here

Deadline: Entries are open till July 7th

What happens next: If your idea or innovation is selected as one of the eight finalists, you will be offered individual coaching from Accenture and invited to our Nordic Applied Intelligence Forum in Oslo on August 28 to pitch your final idea or innovation. Winners will be selected at that event by the jury. €20,000 is the total prize money that may be split between 1-3 teams or entries.
