How does it work

Donostia Open INN is a space where you can post and share your thoughts with the online community. The best ideas will be developed through seminars in order to promote them as pilot projects.


Once you have registered your profile in Donostia Open INN we encourage participants to post comments. You can post ideas and comments about the challenge, or about potential future challenges. You can also add photos and videos. Or if you prefer you can simply follow the debate without commenting.


Once we have collected all the ideas and suggestions about the challenge, we will select the most relevant ideas to develop them. At this stage, those who have posted the selected ideas will participate, and meetings with key people and organisations will be organised to develop the concepts into functional ideas with the objective of applying the ideas as pilot projects in the city in the last stage.


Pilot projects The process of testing the idea in the city depends on the type and nature of the idea. In any case, the objective is to apply the idea and have the pilot project launched within 6 months of the selection of the idea.
