The TRIZ Challenges

Ian Care

As an experiment, we are setting some "TRIZ challenges" to challenge you to use your TRIZ skills and your knowledge to help to solve a humanitarian or social problem.

We hope that you will submit your results for publication in the TRIZ journal. Comments on any of the challenges are welcome. If you are a student, you may want to take and research a challenge to solve as part of your course or project work.

Send your results, ideas, comments and suggestions for future challenges to

Genrich Altshuller gave us TRIZ for free, now it is our turn to use TRIZ for the benefit of the world and our fellow creatures. We hope that you all will rise to one of our challenges this year, and that you will enjoy solving the problems.
