Open Innovation for a Good Night’s Sleep

Open Innovation for a Good Night’s Sleep

Nov-17-17 By IdeaConnection
Things don't only go bump in the night they also go whizz, woof, and clunk as there are many ways nighttime slumber can be disturbed - rowing neighbours, pets, partying kids, a snoring partner, machinery and so on. Headphones and earbuds can drown out some intrusive noises but there may be another way and that's with sound.

Bose Corporation is developing sleepbuds that produce soothing sounds to help people drift off, and it's asking the crowd to contribute.

Calling All Innovators: 2018 Syngenta Crop Challenge Needs You!

Calling All Innovators: 2018 Syngenta Crop Challenge Needs You!

Nov-03-17 By IdeaConnection
For the world to grow enough food for the projected global population in 2050, agricultural productivity will have to rise significantly, perhaps even double what it is now. One potential hurdle is that we're running out of cropland - land needed to grow crops. Other obstacles include climate change, limited growing conditions, and water scarcity.

To help generate the maximum yield from crops corn breeders develop experimental hybrids by finding the best combination of genes that result in high yielding hybrids.  These are tested in diverse locations and their performance measured, but there is a limited number of locations breeders can test.This results in fewer observations which means there can be uncertainty when selecting new hybrids.

So this is where you can come in by contributing to an open innovation challenge that could net you thousands of dollars.
