Submitted by coondoggie
coondoggie (973519) writes "Got a complicated problem? Hold a prize competition to solve it. That’s the basic idea behind the America Competes Act renewed by Congress this week.
The Competes act now gives every department and agency the authority to conduct prize competitions, according to the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy. Prizes and challenges have an excellent track record of accelerating problem-solving by tapping America’s top talent and best expertise."
