What is a role of an Expert?

The role of an Expert is to assess solutions which have submitted their application to obtain the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label. An Expert receives solution invitations tailored to his/her Expert profile. The Expert can then access the Solution Submission Form (10-20-page file) which contains all the information regarding the solution, and he/she is expected to accept or decline within 5 days. If the Expert accepts the solution, he/she is then expected to:

  • Evaluate all the five criteria,

  • Ask questions to the Innovator in the chatbox (if needed/relevant),

  • Complete and submit the assessment within 15 days from the assignment date

The Expert will then be notified of  the outcome of the Solution he/she has assessed once three Experts have assessed that solution, and on a case-by-case basis, may receive feedback from the Solar Impulse Foundation team.
