26 October 2022. Results of the conferences «TRIZ Summit – 2022».

The International Conference of the TRIZ Developers Summit is one of the most significant annual events of the global TRIZ movement. The 18th TRIZ Summit conference was held online from 14 to 16 October 2022. The conference, as usual, is timed to coincide with International TRIZ Day, which is celebrated worldwide on 15 October, the birthday of TRIZ founder G.S. Altshuller. Three sections worked at the conference: “TRIZ in IT and technology”, “TRIZ in business”, and “Creative personality and TRIZ in education”. More than 500 participants from 57 countries from Australia, Asia, North and South America, Africa, and Europe have registered for the conference. The conference was attended by TRIZ Masters and certified TRIZ specialists.

The “TRIZ in IT and Engineering” section presented research results on using TRIZ in innovation, developing IT systems, and, in particular, IoT systems. Traditionally, within the framework of the conference, a report was made about one of the TRIZ Masters. However, this year it was a report on the life and work of Nikolai Shpakovsky. In addition, an ontological approach was presented to describe the initial problem situation and the formation of a roadmap for TRIZ projects, teaching TRIZ in practice at Tsinghua University in China, and other reports.

The second section presented a wide range of materials on the application of TRIZ in business: from consideration of the general laws of system development concerning business tasks to the use of TRIZ in strategic planning tasks, in social information systems, in solving organizational problems of local government, in TRIZ projects in enterprises and financial institutions. Presentations were made on the development of TRIZ Industrial Park in China at the Institute of TRIZ Innovation Management in Azerbaijan and Turkey.

In the section “Creative Personality and TRIZ in Education”, for the first time at international conferences on TRIZ, reports presented different approaches to forming and developing a Creative Personality. The presentation aroused an active discussion among the participants of the forum. In addition, a speech was shown forecasting the development and design of TRIZ-civilization. Several other reports were devoted to the peculiarities of TRIZ methods in educational institutions of different countries. It is essential to use this information when planning further work on the application of TRIZ methods in education.
