Get Inspired

Our first Open Innovation Challenge for students only runs from June 14th until September 14th. During this period you can get inspired by reading about Yara and the different challenges. You can work on ideas individually or as a team and submit your proposal to Yara by register a profile and fill in an idea form here.

Remember: It’s about creative ideas – you don’t need to develop a complete final solution.


Submit

Questions to be answered when you are submitting your idea

  • What problem is your idea solving?
  • What job will it be doing?
  • What makes your idea stand out?
  • What obstacles might you encounter when implementing your idea?
  • What value will your ideas bring to the customer, society and Yara?
  • What would the potential commercial benefit of your idea be?

Log in and fill in the form between June 14th – September 14th and click “Submit Idea”. You can attach a video, a short presentation or a document outlining your idea. You can also save your idea as a draft and submit it on a later stage. All ideas must be submitted in English.

We are looking for creative minds, presenting ideas that are strongly linked to the defined challenges.
