Open Innovation Submission Portal

Frequently Asked Questions

The reasons are threefold. First, CSL and its affiliates wants to ensure that all submitter responses are reviewed and dealt with in a consistent and timely manner. Second, CSL and its affiliates understand that solutions can be provided by a variety of sources, some that may require support in describing the solution in a way that enables more clarity on how it solves a need. yet2 has significant experience working in this area and is able to facilitate the process for ensuring best chance of success. Third, ensuring only non-confidential information is received eliminates the risk of jeopardizing CSL's ongoing research programs, projects and developing concepts. CSL may be developing similar concepts, so sharing only non-confidential information is important for protecting CSL's IP position as well as your own. yet2 can help act as a gatekeeper to prevent CSL from receiving confidential information.

When you submit an idea through this Idea Submission Portal, you will be asked to complete an "Open Innovation Submission Form" including your contact details, a non-confidential overview of your solution and your agreement to the Terms and Conditions of submission and the Privacy Notice. yet2 will review your details and evaluate the solution on behalf of CSL and its affiliates within the portal.

Contact information is essential for us to follow up on your idea. The submission form must also provide an overview of the proposed solution, with the understanding that your submission will not be treated as confidential. You only need to send us an outline of your proposal at this stage, describing how it works in a general technical sense, what the benefits would be and how your innovation is differentiated from the competition. If you have a published paper or granted patent, then you may wish to also provide us with the details of the published paper/patent.

yet2 will review your "Submitter Information Form" in relation to criteria provided by CSL and its affiliates to decide if your solution fits the current needs of CSL. yet2 will follow up directly with you through the portal to inform you of the status (i.e. no further action, more details required, of interest for further discussion, etc).
