From time to time, Newell Rubbermaid does post specific requests for technology and innovation challenges on our website under Technology Assets on the "Our Company" page. There are several requirements to responding to a technology request – for instance, your idea must be patented or patent-pending with a published patent application, and it must specifically relate to one or more of the listed areas of Technology Interests. Detailed information on how to respond to a specific request for information or innovation challenge is provided on our website. Responses will only be reviewed if they are submitted in accordance with the requirements on the specific request.
