The Idea of Innovation A project funded by the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). Innovation is everywhere. In the world of goods (technology), but also in the world of words: innovation is discussed in the scientific and technical literature, but also in social science like history, sociology, management and economics.
