Innovation is not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.

Steve Jobs realized that great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people. 

To apply this concept we ask you to share your new, creative, inspired, “out-of-the-box”, breakthrough ideas and concepts for products, processes, technologies, materials and applications with us. Together we can develop them further. Together we can make it happen! 

You have the opportunity to upload your idea or concept. The application is open from April 1st to June 14th, 2019. 

We offer three different automotive categories: 


Intelligent Control Systems

Materials & Production Processes

After you have uploaded your idea a Magna Steering Committee, comprised of many business area experts, will evaluate all ideas. As the challenge’s highlighting event, we will invite the finalists to the Supplier Innovation Day in November to present their idea and to receive the award.
