WHAT IS IT?
Behave! Portugal is a behavioural design and change competition, in which teams develop solutions to real-life issues. In a time-pressured environment, the teams will have to design a creative solution, leveraging behavioural science, that should be:
Applicable: Your solution can and should be easy to implement.
Testable: Your solution needs to be robust and testable against the current state of things.
Impactful: Your solution needs to have the potential of having a substantial impact on society.
The primary purpose of Behave! Portugal is to produce innovative and feasible solutions to a common problem that some of the most relevant companies in Portugal are currently facing across several industries. The value added to behaviourally-aligned solutions is the ease of implementation, the lower cost and the testable impact.
