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.
