GCSI is the world only exhibition/competition in the areas of TRIZ and Systematic innovation which not only value results but also the process to generate the innovation. Multiple Platinum/Gold/Silver/Bronze medal awards with award up to USD 3,000 and certificates will be awarded to outstanding projects. Total awards of USD 8000 will be available.

Systematic Innovation is a field of knowledge and practical tools which can enable us to systematically identify innovation opportunities and/or arrive at innovative problem solutions. To date, the great majority of innovation ideas come from brain storming type of random processes or spontaneous genius. Both of the situations are either hard to come by or highly unpredictable. In addition, they do not expose us to a full solution space for us to choose the best available solutions. Although, the results are important, the processes to generate the results are vitally important to determine if the desirable results can be achieved reliably. Systematic Innovation knowledge and tools provide systematic processes to enable humans to identify opportunities and solve problems reliably. However, the existing invention/innovation competitions all focus on the results with no consideration at all on the process of generating ideas.

In this highly competitive world, innovation is a survival necessity. We believe that Random Innovation can only help companies to survive but not to excel. To excel, a company needs to deploy systematic innovation! It is believed that “Innovation may be accidental, systematic innovation is destined”. The goals of this global exhibition/competition are to promote systematic innovation and help the proliferation of innovation results. In order to nurture the ability to generate innovative ideas reliably and to see the full solution space of problems, the Society of Systematic Innovation (SSI) establishes this first-ever Global Competition on Systematic Innovation (GCSI). You participation of project competition is cordially invited. Innovations/Inventions are all welcome. Multiple medals and certificates will be awarded to a number of winners.


*****Authors of Selected papers of ICSI/GCSI will be invited to submit an extended version of full paper for review and potential publication in either Computers & Industrial Engineering journal (SCI indexed with high impact factor) or the International Journal of Systematic Innovation.
