The government of Australia under the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has launched the MIKTA education in emergencies challenge in an effort to identify innovative approaches to tackle the challenges of education in emergency situations.

This initiative invites both individuals and organizations to submit ideas that focus on reinventing the way education is delivered in emergency situations, especially for girls. The challenge calls for ideas that apply new technology and develop new business models.

The top entries will receive a share of AUD $2 million in addition to technical or thematic expertise support to scale and implement their ideas.

Ideas should be submitted on OpenIDEO before June 25, 2017
