Commercial organizations, government agencies, and non-profits (known as 'Seekers') are able to post 'Challenges' on the Scientific American Open Innovation Pavilion. These 'Challenges' are well-articulated descriptions of scientific and technical problems that require innovative solutions. The Scientific American Open Innovation Pavilion provides these 'Seekers' with unprecedented access to a global pool of problem solvers, including InnoCentive's existing 285,000-person-strong solver network and Scientific American's audience of five million monthly visitors to ScientificAmerican.com.
"We are truly thrilled to see the fruits of our joint collaboration to bring the Scientific American Open Innovation Pavilion to life," said Jen-Ling Liu, InnoCentive's Vice President of Strategic Alliances. "We are equally delighted by our expanded relationship with Nature Publishing Group, and by the exciting opportunities for solving important challenges facing our world that the new Pavilion will provide to both Seekers and Solvers alike."
"NPG is pleased to expand its relationship with InnoCentive," said Steven Inchcoombe, Managing Director, Nature Publishing Group. "InnoCentive is well placed to help organizations partner with the scientific community to solve problems. The Scientific American Open Innovation Pavilion will allow these organizations to reach millions of new problem solvers who are science and technology enthusiasts."
"We are excited to offer our readers opportunities to challenge themselves by presenting them real problems to solve," said Mariette DiChristina, Editor in Chief of Scientific American.
The Scientific American Open Innovation pavilion marks the growth of InnoCentive's collaboration with Nature Publishing Group (NPG), Scientific American's parent organization. In June 2009, InnoCentive and NPG launched the nature.com Open Innovation Pavilion, which is hosted on InnoCentive.com and nature.com, http://www.nature.com/openinnovation.
The Scientific American Open Innovation Pavilion is one of several Scientific American initiatives that center around solving real life science challenges. Since May 2011, the magazine has actively promoted citizen science projects at http://www.scientificamerican.com/citizen-science. In 2012, Scientific American launched the Science in Action Award, powered by the Google Science Fair, which recognizes a project by young scientists that addresses a social, environmental or health issue to make a practical difference in the lives of a community.
