Research Strategy:

Through an exhaustive research process, we were able to determine that Vallourec has only held one Open Innovation Challenge i.e. the one that was held in 2017. The challenge that the company is currently running in the 2019/2020 period will be the second challenge from Vallourec. We focused research on the 2017 challenge, because the 2019 challenge is still ongoing, and we were able to find a significant amount of information for this challenge. However, information on the results of the challenge was very minimal in the public domain. We employed the use of the following research strategies in our search for this information.

Our first strategy targeted Vallourec's website in our search for information on the results of the 2017 Open Innovation Challenge. Our thinking behind this strategy was that the official website of the company would contain new products that were developed through the 2017 challenge. We did a thorough search for relevant information on various pages of the website including the products and press release pages. However, we were unable to identify any useful information with this strategy as the only available information was general information regarding the company's products, solutions, and news.

Next, we focused our search for relevant information on press release resources. We targeted our search on these resources because they are usually rich in information from various industries including the oil and gas industry. The resources that we targeted in this strategy included PR Newswire and Globenewswire and after a thorough search, we were still unable to find any useful information on the results of the 2017 challenge. The information that was available with this strategy was majorly press release articles from Vallourec.

In our last strategy, we focused our search for relevant information on business information resources that included Crunchbase, Bloomberg, and Business Insider. Our aim behind this strategy was that we would be able to identify information from the challenge in these resources. However, we were still unable to find information on the success metrics of the 2017 Open Innovation Challenge. The available information was majorly general information on the company's news activities that we could not use to address the research criteria.
