what s an innovation
What’s an ‘Innovation’?
  • It is any practical idea or concept that can change the world for the better
  • It can be a new product, process or service, or simply a new application of existing technology
  • We expect it to be innovative in some way, but not necessarily radical
  • A new approach to implementing a standard computer program would fit, if it created new benefits
