ITEA Magazine 35 - March 2020
Dear ITEA Innovation Community,
Not only technology itself but anything related to or using technology has changed enormously over the past 50 years. Our social life has moved to a digital version; commercial transactions for books and even for videos are digitalised. Additionally, ‘Technological Change’ and its steps as Invention, Innovation and Diffusion are also changing continuously:
- Invention: the creation of a new product has gone from ideation amongst researchers to discussion with customers.
- Innovation: the application of inventions has moved for the first time from laboratories to industrydriven, collaborative research projects.
- Diffusion: the adoption of new innovations has shifted from scientific conferences to customer exhibitions.
