The goal is to implement and demonstrate the practicality of solutions that could improve the efficiency, productivity, quality control, and resilience of the manufacturing industry by focusing on improvements in one of the following key areas:
Workforce optimization/reduction (social distancing);
Waste reduction (Circular economy);
Time optimization/reduction;
Efficient space utilisation;
Enhancing food production including farming.

Those eligible to apply to the call for practical solutions are the legally established entities including private sector companies, academic/research institutions, and NGOs in Kuwait.
The duration of the project should not exceed 6 months from the start to the end of piloting the solution.
To enable mass adoption of the solution, the cost of adopting the solution by others should be reasonable, hence, the naming “practical solution”.
Applicant must have the capabilities to implement the proposed solution and access to a Kuwaiti entity that will act as the host for the pilot project.
Important Notes

As this is a call for practical solutions, there are a few main aspects the review committee will focus on when reviewing your proposal:

How practical the solution is? (Can it be implemented and have a positive impact in a short time?)
Where the practical solution will be piloted? Is there a conflict of interest?
Is the solution ready for mass adoption? (After the initial pilot, how easy could this technology be adopted by other Kuwaiti entities?)
How will the solution help Kuwaiti entities control the negative impacts felt by COVID-19 or prevent future disasters from impacting business continuity/food security?
