How do you use novel ways of intelligence and funding to strengthen your innovation? How do you perform compared to competitors? And last but not least, how can you use public funding to enhance your innovation? These three elements will be examined in this presentation.
Innovation processes can be improved by using novel ways of intelligence to chart short- and long-term innovation trends (Discover) and integrating these in the analysis of customer and market needs (Define) to see how new external stakeholders can be involved in technological development (Develop) and ensure the necessary funding to realise the innovation (Deliver). By connecting these steps to intelligence based on unexplored resources, the impact of innovation increases, sometimes even exponentially. We’ll explore a few case studies of such an intelligence approach, give examples of publicly funded projects and a snapshot of available funding opportunities for your (eco) innovation, under the Title: “Funding (eco) Innovation. Granted!”
