Florence (Italy), November 3-5, 2004
TRIZ the “Theory of Inventive Problem Solving” is a living science and a practical methodology: millions of patents have been examined and analysed to look for principles of innovation – to study the patterns of excellence. The lessons learned from this analysis seem to work in practice. Large and small companies are using TRIZ at many levels to solve problems and to develop strategies for future technologies. TRIZ is mostly applied on technical problems, but spreads nowadays also in other areas..
In 2004 ETRIA – the European TRIZ Association – is proposing its fourth annual TRIZ Future Conference where a broad spectrum of subjects in various fields will be presented and debated with experts, practitioners and newcomers of TRIZ. The last two editions of the conference have been focused on scientific, academic and pedagogical aspects of TRIZ development in 2002 and best practices in systematic innovation through industry (mainly automotive) in 2003.
One of the aims of the 2004 edition is the integration of TRIZ with other methodologies/tools and the dissemination of systematic innovation practices even through Small and Medium Enterprises.
According with this objective, the first day of the conference will be co-organized with the Italian TRIZ Association “Apeiron”. Moreover, the participants to the conference will be able to follow the presentations and gain the maximum value independently from their TRIZ knowledge. According with this goal the sessions will follow an increasing expertise order.
