About the Innovation Network
The Innovation Network advances conversations around innovation and knowledge transfer. Innovation consists of intellectual, creative, and business processes—from ideation to implementation—that lead to application of new knowledge to solve problems of identifiable markets or user groups, or to otherwise enhance society. Innovation requires an intellectual orientation that is collaborative, transdisciplinary, problem-solving oriented, and risk-tolerant. Innovation and creativity are not limited to technology development and business formation. They lead to societal, economic, technological, policy, artistic, or cultural outcomes. In a way, we are, today, reinventing new forms, based on the original form of university economic development—Cooperative Extension—in place since the late 19th century.
