AKRON, Ohio, December 8, 2020 — A collaboration between The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company’s Akron Innovation Lab and Case Western Reserve University offers college and graduate students an opportunity to design the future via a virtual competition focused on the mobility ecosystem.

Goodyear is sponsoring the competition for the fifth straight year as part of its continuing drive to deliver future mobility solutions.

“The Goodyear Innovation Challenge allows students to show their talent and ideas, and we are consistently amazed at the passion and innovation they show,” said John Brainerd, Goodyear manager, Innovation Lab.

While Goodyear held the event at the university’s world-class maker-space in past years, this year, it would be hosting this event virtually due to the ongoing pandemic.

Students are invited to submit their proposals in response to a brief displayed at Case Western Reserve University until February 1, 2021. A review panel will select five teams to participate in the event, which begins February 22, culminating in virtual pitches to Goodyear leaders and an awards program on March 3.

Student participants get a chance to practice their innovation skills in a real-world context and receive valuable mentoring and interaction with Goodyear innovation leaders, along with the opportunity to win cash prizes up to $5000. In conjunction with the program, Goodyear will interview participating students for a possible internship position next summer.

Goodyear is one of the world’s largest tire companies. It employs about 62,000 people and manufactures its products in 46 facilities in 21 countries around the world. Its two Innovation Centers in Akron, Ohio, and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg, strive to develop state-of-the-art products and services that set the industry’s technology and performance standard.
