Smaller prizes in the range of $5 to 50 thousand administered through Innocentive have also been successful. The Rockefeller Foundation and others have sponsored contests for a solar-powered mosquito repellent device (http://blog.innocentive.com/tag/malaria/ ) as well as Small-scale River Turbines for the Peruvian Jungle (http://globalhealth.duke.edu/news-events/general-announcements/globalgiveback-innovation-challenge ). These smaller prizes generally engage a large community of solvers because they have low barriers to entry and the prize money fully covers R&D expenses.
