The RIAC Covid-19 Ideas Accelerator

Welcome! You arrived to the RIAC Covid-19 Ideas Accelerator, a space for countries to share, learn, and collaborate.

What is this about?

Under SEDI’s Inter-American Competitiveness Network (RIAC), the Organization of American States (OAS) launched this platform to identify and share solution-driven innovative products and services to address some of the most pressing needs generated by COVID-19 (such as low-cost ventilators, masks, sanitizing materials, mobile apps, open collaborative platforms, and more).

The purpose of the platform is to share good practices to support government authorities, local leaders, academic experts, innovators, and entrepreneurs from the Americas and beyond engaged in efforts to address the Covid-19 pandemic. Facilitating collaboration opportunities with timely information, contact points, and new technologies can provide valuable resources for leaders and policymakers.

We are looking to inform, inspire each other, and spur partnerships among countries.

You are invited to share initiatives, technologies, economic development strategies, and other mechanisms to mitigate the effects of COVID-19.

The Organization of American States (OAS) as the Inter-American Competitiveness Network (RIAC) Technical Secretariat is pleased to offer this space for countries to share their efforts, get inspired and learn from others, and present concrete opportunities for collaboration that could help accelerate countries’ initiatives.

Let’s join forces and leverage our expertise to think creatively on effective ways that can help address Covid-19’s impact!
