Reimaginng the research paradigm for a rapidly changing world

DARPA program managers were looking for a way to leverage platform technologies to produce better research proposals from novel thinkers outside traditional silos. 

H&S lead the development, testing, and launch of Polyplexus, a platform designed to disrupt the research paradigm by connecting a diverse, global online community of high-caliber researchers and experts to accelerate cross-sector, multidisciplinary knowledge production.

Surfacing high-value ideas and encouraging civic engagement

ARPA-H needed a way to increase brand and mission awareness on its one-year anniversary, with a broad group of health constituencies across the United States.

H&S proposed a national idea-based bracket competition designed to highlight the agency’s mission and engage health professionals, advocates, and patients across the country in sharing and advocating for their ideas to transform health.
