Social Solver

ingenieria para un mundo mas justo

This ecosystem is an innovation ecosystem born in 2021 as a result of the collaboration between ennomotive and the NGO Ayuda en Acción. This collaboration started with the development of the Oxyvita emergency ventilator to combat COVID 19. The objective of this new ecosystem is to provide technological solutions for the most vulnerable communities that live in developing countries such as Latin America, Africa and Asia.

What is Social Solver ingenieria para un mundo mas justo

This ecosystem is an alliance promoted by ennomotive and Ayuda en Acción to revolutionize the impact on social development projects using digitization, open innovation and engineering.

Ayuda en Acción is an NGO that fights against poverty and inequality, while promoting the objective of having vulnerable communities become self-sufficient. AEA works in 20 different countries in Latin America, Asia, Africa and Europe.

The ecosystem publishes challenges for social projects related to the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

Vision: To make the world a better place by sharing technologies and global talent.

Mission: To contribute to the resolution of the great social challenges in the most vulnerable communities using innovation and the best technological talent in the world.

Who can participate in this ecosystem

Companies, foundations and other organizations can all support this ecosystem as promoters or as volunteers.

The companies that are promoters become a part of a committee that annually selects the projects that are addressed in the ecosystem. In addition, these companies can propose their own projects through the platform according to their regional presence and technological areas.

If you are a company, we explain in more detail how to support and participate in social impact challenges

The ecosystem invites both students and engineering professionals with technical knowledge in photovoltaic technology, water treatment, house building systems, digital, mobility, etc., to propose solutions to the challenges.

The winners of the challenges will also be able to implement the solutions in the area itself.

Types of projects in which you can collaborate:

  • Photovoltaic installation solutions in off-grid areas
  • Modular and fast-built homes
  • Water sanitation networks
  • Water purification
  • Irrigation systems
  • Digital systems for education
  • Small industries
  • Circular economy projects
  • Environmental impact reduction projects
  • And much more...

What is the best system for keeping fish catches fresh?

Response: Is a centralized system better than a distributed one? Is it better to cool on the coast or on the boats? Does it make sense to use one or more mother-vessels? Can we reuse existing resources or should we build something completely new? Can we use solar energy? Only solar or a combination of different energy sources?

Take a look at this article with the winning solution. A tank is being installed on the ships with a pump to recirculate water, so that fished can be maintained fresh https://www.ennomotive.com/environmental-issues/
