Solve at MIT is the annual flagship Solve event, which takes place on MIT’s campus. Solvers present their solutions to Solve challenges, and participate in workshops with Solve members to develop partnerships to pilot and implement the solutions. The next set of Solve challenges are also announced at this event.
Three Days of Solutions, Connections, and Partnerships
Solve at MIT will feature our selected Solvers, as well as the foremost leaders from corporations, foundations, nonprofit organizations, government, academia, and the media. The Solve community is united by a common goal-partnering to implement the best solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.

Challenge workshops: Working sessions that focus on Solve’s current and new challenges, with the aim of developing partnerships to pilot and scale solutions.
