EPIC Challenge – Earthwide Peace Innovation Collaboration Challenge

Welcome to the EPIC Challenge blog!

EPIC Challenge is a multidisciplinary research collaboration launched by a team from Stanford’s Persuasive Technology and Peace Innovation Labs. The Earth-wide Peace Innovation Collaboration Challenge (aka EPIC Challenge) is an open innovation process designed to measurably reduce “wicked problems.”

Though we plan to tackle more complex wicked problems in the future, our pilot project attempts to measurably reduce gang violence, initially in East Palo Alto. To do this, we are inviting people from all around the world to solve this problem. As an incentive, we are providing a performance-based prize given to anyone who can most effectively end gang violence in East Palo Alto. From this specific case, we will move on to tackle gang violence in cities all around the world.
