This week’s funding opportunity notices (weekly)
USDA Innovation Challenge | ChallengePost
Help create a sustainable, competitive, and healthy US food system. Use USDA data to create working, interactive applications to get farmers the information they need – and help feed America.
What to Create: Submit a working, interactive application that integrates one or more of the required USDA datasets.
Static data visualizations will not be eligible. Applications must include interactive functionality (e.g. the user can change parameters to update the visualization and/or result).
Smartphone or tablet (iOS, Android, Blackberry, Kindle, Windows 8 Mobile)
Web (mobile or desktop)
Desktop (Windows PC, Mac Desktop)
Software running on other publicly available hardware (including, but not exclusive to, wearable technology, open source hardware, etc.)
Supplemental Material: You must submit a demo video (hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, or Youku) that walks through the main functionality of the application via screencast or video. You must also submit a text description and at least one image/screenshot of your working application.
Testing: You must make your app available for testing by providing a link to access your installation file, an uploaded installation file, a beta distribution build, etc. See full testing access options.
New & Existing Solutions: Apps may be newly created or pre-existing. If the submitted app existed prior to the competition’s submission start date, it must have been updated to integrate the required USDA data during the submission period.
