Innovation, and fostering innovation culture, is an important driver of sustainability and growth in business. Leading businesses recognise the value of innovation and often have dedicated teams supporting innovation and the creation of an appropriate culture. As the majority of graduates will be working in SMEs with limited funds and competing priorities, it is necessary for young engineers to learn a new approach to creating innovation culture without the need for large budgets.
