Interested participants


The oil spill open innovation wiki is a platform for engineers and laypeople to collaborate on developing solutions to the oil spill crisis in the Gulf of Mexico. Participants will collaborate to find and post information necessary for the development of solutions. A Solution List article that lists, in appropriate categories, solution proposals with a short description will be created. Solution proposals on the Solution List will link to a more detailed solution proposal article that, in it's final form, will yield an actionable solution design that includes an assessment of risk, benefits, costs, as well as any necessary schematics and verifying calculations.
