Member Summit 2016 - Digitalization and R&D: Collaboration Report Out

Innovation in R&D is a perpetual challenge, but online crowdsourcing platforms have enabled unprecedented opportunities to find creative inspirations and spark novel connections between ideas from diverse sources. Learn how the ROR Collaboration team leveraged the power of new crowdsourcing tools in combination with scientifically-proven strategies for creative thinking to develop a new method for augmenting R&D problem solving. The team will reveal findings from the first ever field test of this new process, conducted at the IRI Spring Networks Meeting and Annual Meeting, to solve two real industrial challenges, and what the results imply about emerging best practices for augmenting R&D innovation.
