UNICEF Innovation is an interdisciplinary team of individuals around the world tasked with identifying, prototyping, and scaling technologies and practices that strengthen UNICEF’s work. The UNICEF Innovation Hubs are open, collaborative incubation accelerators that bring business, universities, governments and civil society together to create innovative sustainable solutions to the most pressing challenges facing children and youth.
UNICEF recognizes that innovation is vital to the state of the world’s children. Challenges have never been larger, or coming faster – urbanization, climate change, lack of employment opportunities, broken education systems, increased disparities and digital divides. However, a new global infrastructure is being created that has potential to address these challenges. This is an infrastructure of openness, of collaboration across borders, of exploration, and of innovation for equity.
