What is Sónar+D Innovation Challenge?
Sónar+D Innovation Challenge (SIC) is a platform co-organised with the Music Technology Group (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) for connecting tech companies, universities and brands with creators from different disciplines: artists, designers, hardware specialists, coders, makers, etc.
Sónar+D Innovation Challenge is a platform designed for companies and creators to connect organically with the Sonar+D innovation ecosystem.
Open collaboration is at the heart of the Innovation Challenge: Creators work online on their projects for five weeks and meet in person for the first time at Sónar+D, where they have 4 days to finalize their prototypes and present them to the audience.
How it works
A company proposes a challenge, an open question for the creative community to push forward the future of the creative industry. Challenges may not be exclusively technology-driven, but also driven by branding or artistic motivations. Creators from all around the world can sign up for a challenge through our website. After a selection process that considers background, gender balance, diversity and motivation, each challenge gets a team of 5 creators to work in a prototype within a unique collaborative environment together with company mentors. See former challenges here.
