“We’re honored to support Collaboration.Ai in teaming up with NASA’s Center of Excellence for Collaborative Innovation,” said Jan Fischer, innosabi’s Managing Director. “Our innovation management technology will help harness the collective intelligence of diverse participants, contributing to the advancement of space science.”
Minneapolis, June 21, 2023—Collaboration.Ai has been awarded a new contract with NASA’s Center of Excellence for Collaborative Innovation (CoECI), building on the prior success of NASA@WORK, an internal innovation program that empowers agency employees to share knowledge and accelerate progress. The five-year agreement leverages Collaboration.Ai’s robust innovation suite, CrowdVector, to further engage NASA’s internal ecosystem, fuel ideation, surface solutions, and drive collaboration.
“We’re proud to support NASA’s continued advancement in exploring air and space, innovating for the benefit of humanity, and inspiring the world through discovery,” said Brennan Townley, Collaboration.Ai CEO. “By cultivating intelligent collaboration among the agency’s trailblazers and subject-matter experts, we can help redefine what’s possible. For me personally, as someone who grew up fascinated by the field of space exploration, this opportunity is especially meaningful.”
CrowdVector will serve as the foundational platform for this initiative, with best-in-class crowdsourcing innovation technology powered by innosabi. In addition to offering customization for user interfaces, workflows, and branding, CrowdVector will provide a comprehensive set of managed services, such as design, configuration, reporting, maintenance, and technical assistance.
Outputs will include a seamless technology transition and enhancement of the current program, backed by Collaboration.Ai’s decades of innovation and knowledge management experience. The company will focus on intuitive campaign access, incentives for involvement, and an integrated community management and communication system.
