Of the proposals received, 30% have already been validated as innovative and 17% have already moved on to the technical match phase, when the owners of the solution have the opportunity to present them to the areas who address the issue at Tupy.
The on-line platform, which can be accessed at www.tupy.com.br/inovacao-aberta, has information on the four challenges currently registered to address quality, use of natural resources, greenhouse gas emissions and machining.
