    Hey scientists and science geeks,

    I'm one of the founders of a project called hypios,
    and I thought readers of this forum would be interested to hear about what
    we do and how it relates to the scientific community.

    Basically, hypios (http://www.hypios.com) is a platform where a company describes a problem it has
    (usually in Research and Development) and announces how much it would be
    willing to pay for a solution. We post the problem on our site, where
    "solvers" like you can see the problem and offer potential solutions. If
    the company decides to use one or more of the solutions, they will pay the
    solver(s) who submitted those solutions.

    There are going to be problems in all fields of science: physics, biology,
    chemistry, math, computer science, etc. Right now, we're building a
    community of solvers. Based on who signs up now and what their specialties
    are, we'll gather more problems in those fields. (If you
    want to sign up now, we can notify you when the first problems that match
    your interests appear on the site.)

    We'd really like to hear what you think about the concept and what we've
    done with it so far. Creating an account is absolutely free.

    If you want to learn more about how hypios works, we've also put together
    a brief video presentation at http://www.hypios.com/solver.

    We'll be launching the beta version of the platform in a few weeks. If
    anyone has any questions or comments about the concept, we'd love to learn
    what you think about the project.

    Cheers,

    Jeremie, for the hypios team.

    Not yet! As announced, it's only an information version, in order to have a certain number of signed up solvers before to post the first problems.
    The beta version is coming soon (1st may), where you will be able to log in and solve problems.

    I found at least 2 other competitors in France:
    - http://www.crowdspirit.com : a bit geeky
    - http://www.presans.com : from the prestigious Ecole Polytechnique.
    I am registered on both. Nothing happens really with crowdspirit ( http://www.crowdspirit.com ) and presans are open to pre-registration. PRESANS ( http://www.presans.com ) recently announced a real life event for the official launching. There is something in the air with open innovation in France
