Burgos, Spain – Spain's Grupo Antolin, an automotive seat maker, is launching a new open innovation programme, Antolin i.Jump.
The plan is to use crowdsourcing to speed research, development and innovation in an open environment. Organisations in STEM, engineers, physicians, start-ups, technology centres and universities are all welcome to join.
Antolin, which became part of Lear in 2017, will launch a series of challenges with its partner Ennomotive. This is an open innovation platform that has 15,000 engineers from across the world. Groups which successfully resolve the challenges will win financial prizes. In addition, they may be able to work with Antolin on future problems.
Antolin is set to issue its first i.Jump challenges later in May. They are likely to include technical solutions to improve life on board vehicles, and air quality.
