About us

Innovation is humanitarian.

As the protection needs of people forced to flee grow rapidly across the world, innovative solutions are required of humanitarian actors to adapt and deliver for the people we serve.

UNHCR’s Innovation Service is a facilitator of this mission. Dedicated to supporting the transformation of UNHCR through experimentation, testing and scaling solutions, we invest in promising ideas in the areas of digital inclusion, data and AI, environment, refugee-led innovation, as well as innovation learning and storytelling.

The Innovation Service exists to support displaced people and UNHCR colleagues in using the tools and approaches of innovation to solve pressing challenges.
