The pool of ideas is an experimental crowdsourcing platform. A website where everyone can submit an idea or contribute to ideas from someone else.
lThe first question is: "How would you connect the center with Strijp-S?. From July 1 reactions can be placed on the website www.ideeenvijver.nl.
The municipality is testing the potential of technology to engage people in order to receive faster solutions that are supported by the people. Through crowdsourcing hundreds of people think about an issue, rather than just a few specialists. The probability of an innovative and surprising idea is therefore much greater.
The Eindhoven municipality hopes to encourage and utilize this process by means of The Pool of Ideas. A price is therefore not only given to the winning idea, but also to the person who has contributed the most to the ideas of others.
The winners receive a cash prize of 500 euros, an official publication in Groot Eindhoven, an article on the site of the municipality and a public unveiling during the Dutch Design Week.
