In March, we proudly announced an alliance with Nature Publishing Group, publisher of some of the most prestigious journals in science - including Nature and Scientific American. The teams have been working diligently since the announcement to get key elements in place.
Well this week, Nature and InnoCentive formally announced the next phase of our cooperation. We have launched the nature.com Open Innovation Pavilion to focus on Challenges in life sciences, physical sciences and clinical medicine. Further, both InnoCentive and Nature Publishing Group are working with commercial and Not-For-Profit (NFP) organizations to identify world changing Challenge opportunities for our Solver community. As an example, The Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative (DNDi) will be one of the first Seekers to post a Challenge on the nature.com Open Innovation Pavilion.
Equally exciting, Nature Publishing Group users from all over the world will be invited to join the InnoCentive community to bring their creativity, inventiveness, and passion to work on important problems.
We are thrilled to be working with Nature and believe that our alliance will result in extraordinary opportunities for Seekers and Solvers alike. These are exciting times.
