The online phase of the Sónar Innovation Challenge begins!

With the conclusion of the Open Call and the final selection of our challengers, we are now at the pleasant position of announcing the kick-off for the online phase of the Sónar Innovation Challenge!

The online phase officially starts this week and will last until the 14th of June. During this time, each team of challengers will collaborate over the internet together with the mentors of their challenge in order to define their roles in the team, describe the team’s proposed solution, create a first prototype and prepare a work plan for the 3 intensive days of the on-site phase of the SIC that will take place from June 15th to June 17th.

During the online phase, you will be able to follow each team’s progress through their public page that will be published on this website within this week.  In the meantime, here is the list of challengers and mentors for each challenge:
