IT Innovation Contest

A team-based contest for creative IT solutions

Awarded Proposals

From July 13 through August 3, 2012, Information Technology at UCSF sponsored the first IT Innovation Contest to develop quick and creative IT solutions with broad benefit. This team-based contest was open to all UCSF faculty, staff, and students, and 5 winning teams were each awarded $10,000 to implement projects by October 1, 2012.

Seeking to enable new models of collaboration in proposal creation and team development, the IT Innovation Contest utilized a novel "Open Proposal" format, which allowed others at UCSF to review proposals and make comments, and gave applicants the opportunity to find potential partners and make improvements to original proposals.
