UNHCR’s Innovation Fellowship
Innovation is about people. The UNHCR Innovation Fellowship is a 12-month learning programme for UNHCR’s workforce. The Fellowship programme focuses on building Innovation Fellows’ innovation skills and competencies in addition to supporting them to facilitate innovation with colleagues, partners, and refugees in their own operations or divisions.
UNHCR’s Innovation Service is committed to creating an enabling environment for innovation to flourish in UNHCR by equipping staff with the knowledge, resources, and skills needed to ensure that they can increasingly draw on structured innovation to solve the most pressing challenges.
We create safe spaces for experimentation to take place in field operations, as well as at Headquarters, whilst instilling a future-oriented approach into how we solve problems.
At UNHCR, communication is a critical tool for making innovation accessible, shining a light on bright spots and promising practices, and creating new paths for organizational and systems change. More importantly, communication and conversations about innovation can help people generate a common understanding of what innovation is and who gets to be an innovator. This space brings you an honest look at what humanitarian innovation looks like in practice at UNHCR.
UNHCR Innovation Service’s new blog brings you a transparent looks at what humanitarian innovation looks like in practice for (and with) refugees.
