Where to Study TRIZ

| On 05, Feb 2007

By Gaetano Cascini

Since the 2004 Edition of the TRIZ Future Conference we have been working to create a reference database that includes information on all of the educational instututions involved in the research, application and dissemination of TRIZ. It required more time than I expected as we exchanged hundreds of emails, performed endless Internet searches and synthesized pages upon pages of data in different formats.

The good news? I am pleased to note that TRIZ knowledge is evolving much faster than our ability to map it. The following table is only a small sample of the offerings from more than 130 institutions across the world. The European TRIZ Association is going to launch a wiki-page so that anyone will be able to make changes and additions to the database in the future.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the development of this database.
