The Altshuller Institute for TRIZ Studies
$500 Plus TRIZ Award
In an effort to promote the value of TRIZ, AI is announcing the $500 plus award. This award will be presented to the individual, or team members who documents the best use of TRIZ approaches to solve a problem or to generate a new product. The award is not based upon the amount of money generated as a result of the project but on how well the TRIZ methodology was used. All entries must be real projects using the name of the organization that benefited from the project. They must be approved for publication by the organization that was affected by the TRIZ program. The individual applying for the award can be the team leader, a member of the team that used TRIZ, or an individual that uses TRIZ to solve problems or to develop new products.

Altshuller Institute: We are the only organization officially authorized by Genrikh Altshuller, the founder of TRIZ, to use his name. TRIZ (pronounced treez) is the Russian acronym for the "Theory of Inventive Problem Solving." TRIZ is a powerful systematic methodology, based on empirical data (study of patents) that can provide solution concepts for a wide range of technical and non-technical problems.
In 1995, the team at Technical Innovation Center approached Genrikh Altshuller about creating a non-for-profit institution to promote TRIZ outside of Russia. Genrikh Altshuller gave his blessing for the idea and members of the TRIZ community went about realizing this initiative. In the fall of 1998, with the enthusiastic support of TRIZ users around the world, the Altshuller Institute for TRIZ Studies was established. The Institute has continued to develop, serving the needs of a growing TRIZ community.
The Altshuller Institute, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, provides many services to the world TRIZ community. In addition to disseminating TRIZ training at our annual TRIZ conference, TRIZCON, the Altshuller Institute also promotes other global TRIZ events and links to other TRIZ-related sites. The Altshuller Institute's General Store makes the largest collection of TRIZ materials in the world available to everyone. This web site also provides news sections for any member of the TRIZ community to post press releases. Don't miss our monthly online periodicals, articles and papers relative to current TRIZ usage.
