Scoping sessions are short workshops that maximize diverse expertise to break down a broad topic area into actionable challenges and opportunities. Participants say they find the format dynamic, the interdisciplinary collaboration engaging, and the ideas that emerge inspiring!

They are a great way to:

  • Jumpstart Grand Challenges
  • Collect input from large and diverse communities
  • Explore potential areas for  solicitations and RFPs

During a scoping session, facilitators orchestrate many fast-paced interactions that result in a broad exploration of the topic area. The outputs of these activities are then prioritized for future pursuits in Ideas Labs or through more traditional funding approaches.
