21 CHALLENGES TO SHAPE THE 21ST CENTURY

Odyssey is a non-profit online incubator for multi-stakeholder collaboration that connects governmental, corporate, scientific and nonprofit partners with anyone that can contribute to building open source solutions for complex 21st-century challenges. Together, we create an interconnected, multi-stakeholder ecosystem where we discover the future by building it.

Innovation Program

The Odyssey Innovation Program is a seasonal, 10-month journey starting from problem identification to building the solutions and implementing multi-stakeholder pilots. The highlight of the program is Odyssey Momentum, the Online Mass Collaboration Arena opening once a year, to solve complex 21st century challenges. This completely new online experience of 49 hours allows everyone to embrace the potential of the internet and open a new world of possibilities to collaborate and create value.

Momentum takes place on November 13-15, 2020
