Abstract
The Seeker desires proposals for using photochemical reactions in a continuous flow reactor to replace commonly used batch reactions in pharmaceutical manufacture. This is an Ideation Challenge with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution.
Overview
The Seeker desires proposals for using photochemical reactions in a continuous flow reactor to replace commonly used batch reactions in pharmaceutical manufacture.

This is an Ideation Challenge, which has the following specific features:

  • There is a guaranteed award. The awards will be paid to the best submission(s) as solely determined by the Seeker. The total payout will be $8,000 USD. The Seeker can payout as one award or split it among the best submissions. One award will be at least $5,000, and no award will be less than $1,000. This means that your submission does not necessarily need to be perfect – it just needs to be better than others for you to win the award.
  • You are not required to transfer exclusive intellectual property rights to the Seeker. Rather, by submitting your proposal, you grant the Seeker a royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive license to practice your idea submitted for this Challenge.
  • The Seeker will complete the review process and make a decision after the challenge deadline. All Solvers that provide a submission will be notified about the status of their submission; however, there will be no detailed evaluation of your submission.

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.
