CALL FOR CHALLENGES
«Through the power of collective intelligence and expertise of the community, the Innovation Booster «Plastics for Zero Emission» has helped us to define a complex challenge and empowered us to generate bold, innovative solutions that drive positive change.»
FIFTH CALL FOR CHALLENGES
Open innovation, design thinking, radical ideas
Do you want to reduce the CO2 emissions of your products in the field of plastics and composites? Develop a recyclable product or replace conventional raw materials with natural ones? Tackle these challenges thanks to our Innovation Booster “Plastics for Zero Emission”!
Our “Call for Challenges” enables Swiss companies to contribute a challenge or a problem statement as an implementation partner. Together, we sharpen and formulate these into challenges, which we then make known to potential idea finders in our network and beyond (universities, research institutions, start-ups as well as other companies and organisations).
We are explicitly looking for visionary challenges with a medium to long-term time horizon. Visions whose feasibility must first be tested. Innovations that need radical ideas to be realised.
At our ideation workshop, initial ideas for solving your challenge are developed and teams are formed to continue working on the solution together with you. We support the teams with the most promising solution ideas with CHF 25’000.
The Participation in this “Call for Challenges” including support in formulating and sharpening the challenge, use of the Bamboostar Academy as well as the participation in the ideation workshop is free of charge. Only if you decide to select a project idea to work on in an interdisciplinary team will your financial contribution amount to CHF 5’000.
Interested? Write us an e-mail, give us a call or fill out the form below, and we will help you to formulate your challenge
