Project Summary:   
Please visit the Open Innovation Call page and review the details of the event before you click “respond to posting”:  
Are you an innovator willing to help Greater Vancouver become even greater? Do you have ideas on how to enable more seamless door-to-door mobility for people and goods? If so, this Open Innovation Call is for you!        
TransLink is seeking innovative ideas to improve mobility in this region. We are offering partnership opportunities to incubate, develop, test and help commercialize winning ideas.        
- The Open Innovation Call is open to anyone – we encourage individuals, companies, non-profit and non- governmental organizations, and academic institutions to apply.        
- Ideas can be at an early concept stage, or embodied in an already commercialized product or service.      
- Ideas will be screened and the best ones invited to present in front of an evaluation panel.
- If your idea is selected, you may be offered:
  • support to help further develop your idea (for pre-commercialized ideas);
  • access to TransLink assets to test or demonstrate your idea (for near-commercialized ideas);              
  • opportunity to pilot your idea on a larger scale in partnership with TransLink (for market-ready ideas).      
Ideas must address the specific challenges outlined in the Open Innovation Call.    
Please note TransLink does not disclose its budgetary information.
