Great idea! Can brainstorming.com help actualize this? Brainstorming.com can identify active and probably high scoring brainstormers. On the other hand, interested institutes can register to the platform for the exchange network. The registered groups/ labs get the list of brainstormers and can then "swipe" them left or right. When there is a match, the brainstormer and the group are connected. They can either continue their research on a public or a private session here on the platform or the brainstormer can relocate to wherever the group is.

I support it and would like to add an idea of how the institutions should be matched. In the world, there is a huge but limited palette of skills one can learn (from communication and presentation skills to languages and static calculations in CAD). All of them are gradable, either with scalable systems (IELTS test for languages, certificates for sales, and marketing) or with simple YES or NO (underwater welding). Since, for example, a quality technician in Tesla has an incredible ability to focus on details, he could assist in the development of a new image analysis algorithm for histopathological samples in hospitals. Therefore, it could be useful to develop a system that summarizes the job positions and corresponding ideal skillset/characteristics needed and use it to pair institutions that could then easily cover and supplement each other.

The beauty of diversity is that we cannot predict what someone with unrelated expertise can notice/contribute to a project outside of their area of expertise. We could "speed date" the teams to maximize the diversity of expertise.
