Abstract
Our Seeker Client, FasterCures, a nonprofit organization, is looking for novel approaches/incentives that can reduce the first-mover disadvantage and induce companies to invest more in biomarkers research and qualification, while not limiting their availability to others.
Overview
Our Seeker Client, FasterCures, a nonprofit organization, is looking for novel approaches/incentives that can reduce the first-mover disadvantage and induce companies to invest more in biomarkers research and qualification, while not limiting their availability to others.

This is an Ideation Challenge so your creativity and knowledge qualify you to participate in this Challenge. Ideation Challenges vary from traditional InnoCentive Challenges in the following ways:

  • There is a guaranteed payout of USD $10,000. Two awards of USD $5000 each will be paid to the best two submissions as solely determined by FasterCures.
  • The Seeker has a free, perpetual, and non-exclusive license to practice every idea submitted to this Challenge.

All Solvers that provide a submission will be notified as to the status of their submission after the Challenge deadline; however, FasterCures will not provide a detailed evaluation of proposals that are not selected for an award.

About the sponsoring organization

FasterCures is a nonprofit "action tank" whose mission is to identify and implement global solutions to accelerate the process of discovery and clinical development of new therapies for the treatment of deadly and debilitating diseases.
What is InnoCentive?
InnoCentive is the global innovation marketplace where creative minds solve some of the world's most important problems for cash awards up to $1 million. Commercial, governmental and humanitarian organizations engage with InnoCentive to solve problems that can impact humankind in areas ranging from the environment to medical advancements.

What is an InnoCentive Ideation™ Challenge?

An InnoCentive Ideation™ Challenge is a broad question formulated to obtain access to new ideas, similar to a global brainstorm for producing a breakthrough idea or market survey which may include ideas for a new product line, a new commercial application for a current product, or even a viral marketing idea to recruit new customers. Ideation™ Challenge submissions are typically about two written pages, and Seekers receive a non-exclusive, perpetual license to use all submissions.

In an Ideation™ Challenge, Solvers may:

  • Submit ideas of their own
  • Submit third party information that they have the right to use and further the authority to convey that right and the right to use and develop derivative works to Seekers
  • Submit information considered in the public domain without any limitations on use

Solvers should not reveal any confidential information in their submissions. Often the Ideation™ Challenge will be followed by one or more of the other three Challenge types to further develop the ideas and gain Intellectual Property protection when the concept has been well-defined.
