Emerging technologies & innovation systems

A disruptive or path-breaking innovation can deliver remarkable advances in healthcare, agriculture, energy, transport and financial services but innovators in these areas are also faced with great uncertainty around the nature of future business models and value chains. Innogen offers new insights and methodological approaches for foresighting future business models and value chains in the context of an innovation ecosystem that can either support or constrain the eventual market availability of the technology. Innogen’s expertise lies in understanding, assessing and supporting this innovation-led growth.
