        Subject: Innovation Challenge

Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to join the *DARIAH Innovation Challenge*, an
open case competition launched in the context of the DARIAH Innovation
Forum happening in Dublin, Ireland on November 3, 2022.

How do the arts and humanities contribute to innovation?  How might
industry players harness this potential?  The DARIAH ERIC is seeking to
explore this challenge through a novel mechanism: an *open case competition*
inviting cultural and creative experts in the arts and humanities to submit
their solutions to a culturally embedded, but also economically,
environmentally and socially relevant ‘wicked’ problem.

The central question of this innovation challenge is: How might the
services and spaces of regional airports be reinvented so as to continue to
serve their longstanding mission as hubs for cultural exchange, even if
fewer actual flights arrive and depart from their gates?  How might they
draw inspiration from other kinds of transformed cultural spaces, such as
libraries, museums and bookstores in order to find new pathways to economic
and social vitality?

The 3 finalists will be invited to present their ideas at the DARIAH
Innovation Forum on 3rd November 2022 in Dublin.  From these, one overall
finalist will receive a cash prize of €1000, the two runners up will
receive €500 each.

Find more information on the challenge and submit your ideas by *October 17*

With all best wishes,
