HumanityX supports organisations in the peace, justice and humanitarian sectors to adopt digital innovations in order to increase their impact on society.
Together with our partners, we conduct early exploration of digital technologies. Through our innovation trajectory, we develop and test new digital applications to translate their potential into practice.
Our team provides an external support base to lower the investments and risks associated with innovation, while simultaneously providing a trusted environment to responsibly experiment with new digital applications.
People First in a Digital Age
We support organisations in the peace, justice and humanitarian sectors to adopt digital innovations to increase their impact on society.
Together with our partners, we conduct early exploration of digital technologies. Through our innovation trajectory, we develop and test new digital applications to translate their potential into practice. This helps us to understand both the risks and opportunities of digital innovations through an approach we call "Learning by Doing".
You have an idea for an innovative solution: we help you build it. Within 3 months.
Join us on Future Fridays and share your ideas with our team. We help you to find the best match between your ideas and relevant expertise within our large network. Together, we'll design a brainstorming meeting with relevant Hub partners. If you cannot make it to The Hague, connect with us through our social channels.
We help you decide on how to create a suitable prototype, based on our in-house methodology. Most of our work focuses on three overarching themes: real-time analysis, leveraging the wisdom of the crowd, and peer-to-peer solutions.
We'll help you build a small, interdisciplinary team (including members of our own team) and design a short sprint towards building a first viable prototype.
The prototype you co-create will be available on our open-source platform for other innovators to get inspired.
With this prototype, you can decide whether it is worth investing further. We are happy to help you look for the right partners within our network.
Throughout the entire innovation cycle, we apply design principles that maximise human-centered solutions and minimise risks of data use. We work with experts on data responsibility, and rely on the expertise that is available through the International Data Responsibility Group.
Data increasingly works 24/7. HumanityX helps you to integrate real-time analysis to improve and facilitate the exploration of proactive and innovative ways to improve decision-making.
In an interconnected world, we can use collective intelligence for data-gathering and analysis. Well-designed platforms facilitate crowd-using, which will save time and reduce costs.
The more people who have access to smartphones, the more we will see a dispersal of information and of the service landscape. We help design peer-to-peer solutions that make people more self-reliant.
