the generation of new knowledge. To help SMEs in the development of their product, we propose a methodological approach that will allow to respect eco-innovative goal. As a starting point, a qualitative multi-criteria matrix will allow prioritization of all impacts for environment. A customized application of the inventive TRIZ principles (Russian acronym for theory of solving inventive problems Teorija Reshenija Izobretateliskih Zadatch) will help to choose eco-innovative solutions. To this aim, we have created a new approach: Eca TRIZ, based on new contradiction matrix. It was tested in various situations presented during the “24 Hours of innovation” competition. Some of them are presented in this research paper.
