Reatch Ideas Competition 2022

Tackling crises before they emerge – with research.

Whether it is to tackle the climate crisis, the energy transition, or the transformation of work – a close and constructive collaboration between researchers and politicians is crucial to resolve societal challenges. Unfortunately however, when tackling social crises, scientific findings and research insights remain unused far too often – or, if they find their way into the development of political and social solutions, they do so only at a late stage.

Accordingly, the Franxini-Project is today looking for your solutions to the crises of tomorrow!
