As part of its continuing drive to deliver future mobility solutions, the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is again sponsoring a competition at Case Western Reserve University’s Larry Sears and Sally Zlotnick Sears think[box], a world-class center for innovation and entrepreneurship.
The competition, titled the “Goodyear Innovation Challenge,” serves as a platform for graduate students across the U.S. to showcase their innovative thinking. This year, students are challenged to submit a business proposal that illustrates how Goodyear can leverage new technologies to move forward its supply chain and meet customer expectations in today’s future mobility landscape.
“The Goodyear Innovation Challenge enables students from across the U.S. to experience Northeast Ohio’s growing innovation landscape,” said Erin Spring, Goodyear director of New Ventures. “We’ve seen some great talent over the past three years, and we’re excited to hear the ideas that students around the country will bring to the table this year.”
Proposal submissions are open now through Oct. 14. The top five teams will be invited to participate in another design competition at Case Western Reserve University on Nov. 14 and 15. The teams will be challenged to develop and test prototypes of their solutions and pitch their concepts to a panel of industry experts, including Goodyear representatives and university professors.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three teams. For more information, including rules and how to submit a team proposal, visit https://design.case.edu/.
