On September 30th the collection of applications for Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2021, the contest sponsored by BNP Paribas Cardif and Insuranceup, closed. Now it’s time for the evaluation phase of the projects: it will end with the disclosure of those chosen for the Digital Battle, where the applicants will challenge each other with pitches to support their innovative ideas and impress the panel.
How the projects will be chosen
The projects that best suit the topic of the 8th edition of Open-F@b Call4Ideas: “More Accessible Insurance” will be chosen for the Digital Battle.
In addition to responding to the criteria of originality, relevance of the benefits provided and replicability, in fact, the applicants of the 2021 edition had to meet a specific challenge: designing projects to make insurance closer to the new needs of customers, focusing on issues of inclusiveness, easiness and accessibility.
