Clas Ohlson Product Innovation Challenge enters the next phase

December 2016

The application period for new contributions to the Product Innovation Challenge is now closed. Now it is time for the jury to start their task with appointing the winning product or products.

Three months ago the Clas Ohlson Product Innovation Challenge was launched, a competition with the purpose to introduce innovative products that supports a more sustainable lifestyle. The interest and commitment has been great, and the jurors are impressed with the high level of many of the contributions.

Ulrika Göransson, Director of Strategic Planning at Clas Ohlson, is a member of the jury.

“The interest has been huge, and we have received several really good contributions that could add value to our customers. We in the jury will now appoint ten finalists, who we will interview, and review closer. We will appoint the winner, or winners, in the beginning of next year, and then the work with getting the products out to our stores and online begins. The goal is to have the products available for our customers during financial year 2017/18.”
