The Seeker is looking for new use cases (products, applications, etc) where its recently developed flexible and rollable OLED display can significantly increase the user experience and satisfaction. 

This is an Ideation Challenge with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution.


Rollable displays are a futuristic and exciting technology that has tremendous potential to take consumer experience to a new level. The products and opportunities might be endless, hence the Seeker to this Challenge is challenging Solvers to help identifying use cases to which its recently developed and unique rollable OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display can deliver the most benefit to consumers. 

Solvers should submit descriptions of use cases for the Seeker’s unique rollable OLED display (whose properties can be found in the Detailed Description section of this Challenge) where it can deliver the greatest enhancement of consumer experience and satisfaction. 

This is an Ideation Challenge, which has the following unique 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 $10,000, with at least one award being no smaller than $5,000 and no award being smaller than $1,000. 
  • The Solvers are not required to transfer exclusive intellectual property rights to the Seeker.  Rather, by submitting a proposal, the Solver grants to the Seeker a royalty-free, perpetual, and non-exclusive license to use any information included in this proposal, including for promotional purposes.

Submissions to this Challenge must be received by 11:59 PM (US Eastern Time) on August 28, 2017. Late submissions will not be considered

After the Challenge deadline, the Seeker will complete the review process and make a decision with regards to the Winning Solution(s). All Solvers that submit a proposal will be notified on the status of their submissions; however, no detailed evaluation of individual submissions will be provided.

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.
