The Use of Open Innovation to Address a Technical Challenge Sewer Blockage
This report forms the second part of the project. It provides detail of how an open innovation challenge was run to tackle a technical challenge; managing sewer blockages.
The project was facilitated by InnoCentive, an open innovation provider. An UKWIR Challenge Steering Group attended a workshop to learn about open innovation and to formulate a challenge that would be used to provide a demonstration of how challenges are run. InnoCentive set out its approach and showed what was needed to give the best chance of success. The Steering Group framed the challenge.
InnoCentive ran the challenge on its open innovation platform. 57 solutions from all around the world were proposed. The report provides an overview of the solutions which were novel and wide ranging. UKWIR has a non-exclusive license to practice the solutions which it can sub-licence to its subscribers.
