Welcome to the OpenideaL Innovation Community

Welcome friends, we are happy to launch our OpenideaL ideation and innovation community. 

This community is where all ideas, small as big, have a place to be seen, to be heard, to be read. 

The idea is like grass. It craves light, likes crowds, thrives on crossbreeding, grows better for being stepped on. (Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed)

Don't be afraid to share your idea. It will only get better when it receives feedback from your fellow ideation community members.

With your help, our project will prosper, our budgets will not be wasted, and the end result will correspond exactly to what we all look for. 


Looking forward to reading your ideas!

John Hopkins launches the Clean-Sky challenge!

John Hopkins, head of the Breathable division, announced today the launching of the Clean-Sky challenge, a call for ideas related to air-quality in closed spaces. 

A cross-divisional Hopkins team is working to design and test plans for a mass-producible reusable respirator mask to support the dwindling supply of N95s.

As leading scientists, engineers, researchers, practitioners and academicians, we know the importance of cutting-edge collaboration, creative and critical thinking and multi-disciplinary approaches, which is crucial to the population and the environment. Emerging challenges call for novel approaches.

Join the challenge!
