The DCHI Award for ‘Best Humanitarian Innovation’

October 11th, the DCHI Humanitarian Innovation Award rewarded the best innovative concepts in the field of humanitarian aid with DCHI Innovation Support Premium Package, worth 8,000 euros. In collaboration with The Spindle, DCHI (Dutch Coalition for Humanitarian Innovation) gave innovative teams the opportunity to present their projects at the Partos Innovation Festival 2018.

The winner of the DCHI Jury Award for Best Humanitarian Innovation 2018 is the Optimus tool developed by the World Food Programme (WFP). A game changer for WFP, the aptly named optimization tool ‘Optimus’ serves as a great example and reminder of how data science can have a considerable impact on humanitarian assistance.
