STEP 1 - ADD YOUR INNOVATION
Select one of the below that best suits the innovation you’d like to submit for consideration to be featured on the site:
Option 1: Your innovation is new in response to and after the COVID-19 outbreak. Note: This option will also be suitable if you had an existing innovation before the outbreak but it needs to be significantly altered for the COVID-19 response. Add your innovation to GIE.
Option 2: Your innovation already existed before the COVID-19 outbreak and can be used for COVID-19 response activities right away (without significant alterations). Take the below steps:
- Easily search for your innovation on GIE’s database*. If it exists, update your profile* to demonstrate how your existing innovation can be deployed for COVID-19. See AtmaGO here as an example of how to do this.
- If the innovation does not exist, add your innovation to GIE.

STEP 2 - UPDATE YOUR INNOVATION
Whether you are proceeding with option 1 or 2, ensure your innovation profile reflects both what your innovation is as well as your current needs for COVID-19 activities.
Here are some specific actions we recommend to increase your chances of being selected to be featured and shared with our partners.
- Innovation Description (under Share Your Innovation’s Story) - Use this or a combination of fields in this section to help explain your innovation and demonstrate how it's relevant for COVID-19.
- Stage - Stage and supporting Stage Description (under Introduction) as well as Milestones (under Your Innovation Milestones) that show the validations and achievements your innovation has.
- Location - Add your registration information (under Settings), where your innovation is already implemented (under Milestones - New Country), and New Countries Implemented (under Share Your Innovation’s Story - Upcoming Goals and Milestones)
- Contact details - Include a website link (under Introduction) and point-of-contact (under Settings)
Please use the "Upcoming Goals and Milestones" section (under Share Your Innovation’s Story) to add information about funding, staff, or other resources you need at this time and your planned milestones (i.e. new countries, lives impacted). For those who select option 1, please clarify needs and targets related specifically to your COVID-19 response in the "New Feature'' field in that section.
STEP 3 - SUBMIT YOUR INNOVATION
When your profile is ready, please submit your GIE profile through the below form for consideration to be featured on the site and shared with partners.
