Innovation and patents

Innovation is the introduction of new or significantly improved products and processes.

Introduction

For product innovations to be implemented means that they have been introduced on the market. For processes implementation means that they have been brought into use.

In order to be an innovation, the product or process needs to be new or significantly changed, at least for the enterprise itself. The definition of innovation is developed by OECD and described in the Oslo Manual.
