The European TRIZ Association (ETRIA) is a non-profit foundation registered in 2000 in Freiburg, Germany. ETRIA aims to develop a web-based collaborative environment to link industrial companies, institutions, educational organizations, and individuals interested in innovation processes and knowledge.
Recognizing TRIZ as the breakthrough in the theory of inventiveness and knowledge management, ETRIA supports its further development, including systematization of those concepts and tools, which are still heuristic and only partially formalized. To achieve this, ETRIA involves and collaborates with TRIZ experts and professionals from the fields of logic, informatics, and linguistics.
