Welcome to Tupy's Open Innovation Portal!
We believe we can generate sustainable value by collaboratively bringing together different experiences and competencies. For us, Open Innovation strengthens the Science, Technology, and Innovation ecosystem by co-creating and catalyzing the potential of the entire network.
In this Portal, you will find Tupy's challenges for which we are seeking competencies beyond our walls to reach a solution or move towards jointly.
We do not expect ready-made solutions [although we would certainly be delighted if they were to appear]. We intend to bring elements together, confident that this connection will benefit all participants.
Scientists, entrepreneurs, mature companies, students, inventors, researchers, startups, universities, etc. - no matter where the proposal comes from! What matters is the common interest of turning ideas into realizations.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to have a CNPJ [Corporate Taxpayer ID] to participate?
No. Proposals can be submitted by both individuals and corporations.
What happens after I submit my proposal?
Tupy's Innovation team, along with the technical areas responsible for the challenge, will evaluate the adherence of the submission based on the information filled in the form. Whether or not the proposal is approved, you will receive a formal response within 15 days after sending it. If we consider your proposal, our team will hold one to three meetings to understand your solution better and align the partnership format. It is essential to clarify that by your submission considered, no bond is established between Tupy and the proposer, both being free not to follow through during the alignment meetings. Only the formalization of the partnership with scope, commitments, and values binds the parties.
What are the possible partnership formats?
We will align during the meetings mentioned in the item above. The partnership format depends on the proposal nature and maturity of its development. For example, we can establish a simple supplier or customer-business relationship, a specific Proof of Concept business relationship, a technology partnership project, or even research support - these are not the only possibilities.
I do not feel comfortable sharing my proposal, given the degree of innovation I have generated. How should I proceed?
We do not recommend sharing sensitive information on the form. However, it's essential to provide information that leads us to see the potential of the proposal and its technical/economic feasibility. As soon as we start the meeting phase, we will consider bilaterally signing an NDA that will allow us to move forward in detail.
