Doha Accueil et la Fifa World Cup 2022

Challenge 22

Challenge 22, an initiative launched by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, aims to unite, inspire and challenge the region’s brightest minds, providing innovative thinkers with the opportunity to have their ideas showcased in front of an audience of billions at the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ and beyond.

If you have an exciting new idea that you’d like to see delivered, form a group (up to 4 people, including at least one Arabic person), develop the idea in line with the four categories, and then submit a proposal.

Challenge 22 is focusing on four categories : tourism experience, sustainability, health & safety and the internet of things.

The groups need to be diverse to promote a culture of innovation in the Arab region and attract innovators, entrepreneurs, scientists and pioneers of the Arab world who will contribute towards hosting and organizing major events and building a sustainable future for Arab societies.

Groups with the most innovative ideas will win prizes of USD 15,000 and receive mentoring from leading scientists and researchers in the region. Those with the very best ideas will receive up to USD 100,000 in additional funding to develop their ideas to proof of concept stage.
