Food Stability Competition from InnoCentive Company with 20,000 Cash Prize

InnoCentive Company invites all creative people all over the world to participate in the Competition "Shelf Life Predictions & Stability Measurements" for an award of $20,000. Understanding and predicting food stability is essential to the food industry.  Traditional storage trials, accelerated shelf-life trials, and kinetic assays play a role but are often found to be inadequate.  The Seeker is looking for new ways to measure biochemical and/or chemical stability (e.g. off-flavor formation) in food products to make decisions or to assign shelf-lives to food products.  Specifically, the Seeker requires methods to measure changes to food quality that may arise from only very small compositional changes relative to high background.


  1. The Solver is expected to identify principles for analytical (bio)chemical methods that measure very small changes that occur in food products in a relatively short period of time to provide an estimation of reaction rates.
  2. The Solver should exclusively focus on processed foods stored at ambient temperatures.  Fresh fruits, vegetables, and fresh meats are not in consideration. Frozen foods are also not being considered.
  3. The Competitor should deliver a written proposal for the theoretical Challenge.


  1. The Challenge award will be contingent upon theoretical evaluation of the proposal by the Seeker.
  2. If multiple proposals meet all the Solution Requirements, the Seeker reserves the right to award only the solution which they believe best fits their needs. 
  3. To receive an award, the Solvers will have to transfer to the Seeker their exclusive Intellectual Property (IP) rights to the solution.
  4. The Seeker will be willing to consider a licensing agreement for a partial award if exclusive (IP) cannot be transferred by the Solver.


An award of $20,000 will be given to the winner.
