The idea was the first open innovation platform that included not only innovation and problem-solving processes in business but also scientific and socio-political issues. The range of topics was large and varied:


  •     "What does the city of the future look like?"
  •     "What do I do with a square glass tube?"
  •     "Who will care for us in old age?"


The idea seekers in the innovation power plant actively used the knowledge of the outside world to solve specific questions. The best thinkers, on the other hand, had the opportunity to benefit from the implementation of their ideas through bonuses and the recognition of their performance by the community.
