We are Elrha, a force for change in the humanitarian community. The research and innovation we support equips the humanitarian community with the knowledge of what works, so people affected by crises get the right help when they need it most.
Our purpose is clear: to empower the humanitarian community to improve humanitarian response. We make this happen by supporting and championing the outcomes of robust research and proven innovations.

Over the course of the last 6 months, we have been working to implement a lead user approach to identify innovative solutions to flooding and its effects on people, in Indonesia.

In close collaboration with the Indonesian Red Cross (Palah Merah Indonesia), as well as the Hamburg University of Technology Institute for Technology and Innovation Management, the Humanitarian Leadership Academy, Pulse Lab Jakarta, the Global Disaster Preparedness Center and Zurich Insurance, we have implemented a new methodology in the humanitarian sector called the Lead User method, ran a more traditional innovation challenge in parallel, and brought innovators from both processes together for a conference to share their ideas with potential partners.


Stay tuned for details about the journey, the results and where we go next.
