Innovation Studies Centre

Inspired by Practice, Driven by Evidence

The Innovation Studies Centre (ISC) was an EPSRC- funded centre, running from March 2003-September 2013. Over 10 years it examined the innovation process from knowledge creation to commercialisation. This site explains the various projects undertaken during this time and how the ISC became the basis for the Department for Innovation & Entrepreneurship, a major legacy of this grant, taking forward many of the activities begun here.
