Innovation is fundamental in the process of economic, social and environmentally sustainable development. You will then be better equipped to understand and analyse the grand challenges such as; climate change, food security and poverty alleviation. Innovation is also about the diffusion and incremental changes that yield economic, social and environmental benefits for society.
