Innovation by definition is the act of doing something new. Businesses that encourage an innovative culture and are putting in place innovative practices are known to be more successful as this enables business to stay ahead of the competition as markets, technologies or trends shift.
In a first for regional Australia, the Hunter Innovation Scorecard (HIS) measures the region’s innovation footprint and promotes its innovative capabilities in research and development, education and various industry sectors as well as promoting the strong culture of innovation.
