Teaming with Peers
The Best Solutions Often Come From Unexpected Sources
And a team is more likely to find better solutions than a smart individual working alone. Take the case of James Watson and Francis Crick who cracked the code of DNA. Neither was an expert biologist, and yet, working together, they discovered the double-helix structure of the DNA molecule, the building block of life itself.
Assemble Your Dream Team
With InnoCentive’s Team Project Rooms (TPR), you can assemble your own dream team of smart and motivated peers. In fact, many Challenges offer the opportunity for cross-functional collaboration. By assembling the right team, you’ll increase your chances of submitting a winning submission.
Team Project Rooms
Team Project Rooms are set up and primed for collaboration. We’ve created legal agreements to facilitate intellectual property rights and award sharing. There are also tools for creating discussion forums, sharing documents, communicating with each other and with InnoCentive.
While not all Challenges come with the capability to set up a Team Project Room, all Challenges can be solved by teams. The only difference is that in Challenges without Team Project Rooms, you'll be responsible for negotiating with your peers and making your own arrangements in terms of award sharing.
