Top page:  Welcome to the ETRIA Portal: the official website of the European TRIZ Association, where we inform public about our activities and events, and maintain a virtual venue for the ETRIA community to communicate and collaborate. Please note that some functions of the portal are only available to the registered members of ETRIA.

Contents:  Next ETRIA Conference, Past ETRIA Conferences, ETRIA Conference Proceedings, ETRIA Mission and Objectives, ETRIA Organization, ETRIA History, …

 The ETRIA has been set up to accomplish the following tasks: (1) Promotion of research and development on organization of innovation knowledge in general and particular fields by integrating conceptual approaches to classification developed by artificial intelligence (AI) and knowledge management communities; (2) International observation, analysis, evaluation and reporting of progress in these directions; (3) Promotion on an international level of the exchange of information and experience of scientists and practitioners in TRIZ, of universities and other educational organizations; (4) Development of TRIZ through contributions from dedicated experts and specialists in particular areas of expertise.

[Note (TN, Nov. 17, 2022):  ETRIA was started in 2001 and has been holding TRIZ Future Conference every year in in autumn.  Proceedings of TFC are published by Springer (for scientific papers) and in special issues of university journals (for practitioner papers).  The conferences were organized by ETRIA in collaboration with local universities/consulting firms in various countries. They were held in UK, France (3 times), Germany (3), Italy (3), Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Romania (2), Ireland, Portugal, Switzerland, Poland (2), Finland, and Morocco.  Itineration of TFC served for stimulating/enhancing TRIZ activities in many countries in Europe.  Good collaboration among academia, consulting firms, and industries in Europe may be an important effects of ETRIA Activities. ]

About us :  TriS Europe Innovation Academy was founded under the name TriSolver Consulting in 1998 in Hanover, Germany as a consulting company for Theory of Inventive Problem Solving TRIZ , as the enormous potential of this methodology for systematic innovation was recognized by several leading German companies. Based on his profound knowledge of TRIZ, the TriS Europe founder Prof. Dr.-Ing. Pavel Livotov, a seasoned inventor, author of more than 80 patented solutions and 90 publications on TRIZ, managed to reach and to extend its market leadership in Germany within a short space of time.   Already by 1998 the first TRIZ-software, TriSolver 1.0 appeared on the market, followed by TriSolver 2.0. The web-based software TriS-IDEAS and later TriS IDEAS toolbox have been developed later as result of the close co-operation we have with our customers as a computer-aided innovation (CAI) tool, supporting the innovation management process and idea management, definition of customer-orientated innovation strategies, and the objective evaluation and selection of optimal innovation concepts.
We see ourselves as an expert and confidential business partner in the field of organization and optimization of the innovation management process through providing consulting, software/IT and services. With this complete solution package we are supporting small and medium enterprises, R&D departments, marketing and new product development centres of corporations, supporting innovation champions, product managers, designers and engineers. We help to develop new product or service concepts, to identify precisely true customer benefits and market demands thus securing your business and innovation success.  
Methods :  … The TriS-IDEAS toolbox utilises the best practices in problem solving with TRIZ and Advanced Innovation Design Approach (AIDA).  …AIDA is a holistic approach for enhancing innovative and competitive capability of industrial companies. It can be considered as a pioneering mindset, an individually adaptable range of strongest innovation techniques and advanced innovation methods, best tools and methods of the theory of inventive problem solving TRIZ, organisational measures for accelerating innovation, IT-solutions for Computer-Aided Innovation, and other tools for new product development, elaborated in the recent decade in the industry and academia. … In 2020 the European Commission has placed AIDA on its Innovation Radar as innovation with the high market potential.

Roles :  (e1) Method developers, (e4) Consultants, (e5) Training organizations,

About us :  We are a team of innovation and communication experts, methodology specialists, workshop leaders and entrepreneurs. We are united by the pleasure we take in putting you in a spirit of renewal. Encouraging you to think the unthinkable. And to support you as you think the idea through to its conclusion.   Yes, we are "up to date", but above all, we also bring many years of experience from working with medium-sized companies and international corporations.  We show you that creativity does not need a gene. With our ADT innovation method, we open up a new way of thinking and provide you with the tools and resources that will open up new horizons for your company in a sustainable way.
ADT METHODOLOGY:  Systematic new thinking:  With classic design thinking methods, customers are often observed to determine needs or "pain points". In contrast, our own, more advanced method, Accelerated Design Thinking (ADT) uses the existing know-how in your company to systematically develop new ideas. We use proven scientific thinking tools to break up old patterns of thinking and develop ideas that cannot be developed using traditional customer survey processes. Because often the customer does not see the benefit of these ideas at first glance or the ideas are based on latent needs.  So we accelerate the innovation process tremendously by working directly with the experts from your company. With ADT you can create real innovations that go beyond step-by-step improvements, but still remain within the limits of what is feasible.     Accelerated Design Thinking also functions as a supplement or conclusion to other innovation methods.

About us : (from LinkedIn:)  CEPHEI is a consortium that consists of 9 Universities from 6 countries. We work with courses from universities and companies.  This project is contributing to the scale-up of flipped and e-learning in the field of Industrial Innovation. Innovation is at the heart of growth for business and industry and gives nations a competitive advantage in the global marketplace. It also enables companies to cut costs through downsizing or re-engineering, thus leading to higher profits and greater revenue.  The CEPHEI consortium consists of one coordinator university, Lappeenranta University of Technology (Finland), and eight partner universities from six countries (Netherlands, Sweden, Turkey, Russia, China, Finland).  It is supported by the Erasmus+ Program of European Commission.

From Top page :  CEPHEI :    Cooperative E-learning Platform for Industrial Innovation.   ...  The universities face two challenges that are big opportunities at the same time. One is the digitalization and communication paradigm. The students are digital natives and use technologies all the time while most universities practice the traditional pattern of teaching. In response to their needs, universities need to adapt learning to Millennials. Another challenge is the necessity to link the education with the practice, integrate the reality of professional innovation activities to the context of education according to the demand of industry.  Thus, the best university of tomorrow is one that is able to orchestrate the wide diversity in the supply of teaching materials, project-based learning in international multidisciplinary teams and real needs of industry and society.   This project is contributing to scale-up of flipped and e-learning in the field of Industrial Innovation. 

[Note (TN, Nov. 25, 2022):  This project, as a result of preparatory activities for few years, started in 2019 under the support of the Erasmus+ Program of European Commission.  The website now shows about 30 digital courses, most of them are currently on going.]

About us :  The Austrian TRIZ Platform:  The TRIZ information platform "triz-austria.com" provides companies, organizations and universities with a guide to the application of systematic innovation based on the TRIZ methodology and informs about current TRIZ and innovation topics.  TRIZ (Teoriya Resheniya Izobreatatelskikh Zadatch) = Theory of Inventive Problem Solving was researched by Genrich S. Altshuller through extensive patent and creativity studies.    The main findings of TRIZ are:  Innovations arise from the application of a few innovative principles and laws; Innovations do not occur by chance, but follow the principles of technical evolution;  Innovative solutions are those that use existing resources, transforming harmful properties into useful ones;  Contradictions are the germ cells of innovation, which can be fundamentally solved by TRIZ (instead of compromises)

We finance the development and implementation of the Journal's International Compliance Index (JIC Index) to help young and promising Ukrainian journals in their quest for best publishing practices. We are also ready to cooperate with such journals as a publisher and invite them to our publishing platform.
