The 20th Edition

ETRIA World Conference TRIZ Future 2020

“Systematic Complex Problem Solving in the Age of Digitalization and Open Innovation”



The TFC 2020 Conference Organizers recognize that COVID-19 is creating for everyone a lot of uncertainty with respect to how to approach attendance of the conference. To help minimizing the uncertainty in at least one area, the organizers wish to reassure everyone that the TFC 2020 Conference will proceed on the scheduled dates, between October 14-16, 2020. Whilst our preferred option is to run the conference in the usual face-to-face physical format, and we are continuing to plan for this, we are also considering alternate online formats that will allow everyone to participate irrespective of their circumstances.

We will ensure that the actual format of the conference will be confirmed no later than the 30-th of July 2020.

We hope this will offer some certainty as you consider attending the conference.
