TRIZ Methodology Forum TMF-2024

Information Letter 1


In conjunction with the ITC conference 2024, MATRIZ Official is pleased to introduce the inaugural TRIZ Methodology Forum (TMF), exclusively dedicated to advancing the TRIZ methodology.

This virtual forum will span three consecutive days, September 19-21, 2024, featuring four hours of content daily. The first two days will host a series of presentations focusing on the development of TRIZ methodology. Each TMF event will revolve around a critical theme in TRIZ development.

On the concluding day, participants competing for the title of TRIZ Master will present their theses, showcasing their innovative contributions to TRIZ methodology, practical achievements in applying TRIZ to real-world problem-solving, or significant contributions to TRIZ education.

Each presenter will have a one-hour slot, with 40 minutes designated for the presentation and 20 minutes for a professional discussion (Q&A) session.

Objective of TMF-2024

The primary aim of TMF-2024 is to drive further development of the TRIZ methodology by addressing its most critical gaps. By achieving this goal, we seek to enhance the practical application of TRIZ, refine TRIZ training programs, and foster greater acceptance of TRIZ within individual, corporate, and academic spheres.

Topics of TMF-2024

The 2024 forum's central theme is "Strategies for Identifying the Right Innovation Targets." Sub-topics include:

  • Identifying unmet market needs.
  • Discovering Main Parameters of Value.
  • Identifying the unmet personal needs of decision-makers.

Who Can Attend TMF-2024

TMF is a professional event with three categories of participants:

  • TRIZ professionals, especially those who are prominent developers in the specified TMF topic area, will receive personal invitations.
  • Winners of a separate Competition, to be announced later. Applicants will submit their TRIZ development abstracts, and the TMF organizers will select two winners to present their papers and participate in professional discussions at the Forum.
  • The Forum warmly welcomes all interested attendees. If time permits, some listeners may also participate in the discussions.

The schedule for sending out personal invitations, the call for abstracts, and conditions of the Competition will be detailed in the next information letter, set to be issued by the end of January 2024.
