Approaching a clear definition of innovation regarding the design of spaces is not something that can be taken lightly and overlooked.

First, The author make clear that the definitions

of innovation are as varied as the number

of people who asked what the correct

definition is or published papers

on the topic.

Since the current number and diversity of

definitions of innovation create ambiguity and confusion, the author assumes the definition of innovation by recognizing that while creativity and invention are responsible for generating value, innovation is the art of capturing the added value that has been generated.

Book 1

What is innovation?

 

"We can understand the profile of an innovator—or an innovation team—as divided into two: the ones with abilities to discover or “creative,” and those who have more abilities to deliver or “declive.”."

"Toker (2004) states that the idea of creating informal common areas shared by several universities research centers do not necessarily enable information exchange. The main tendency of university researchers is to stay in their research territories (offices) and it is uncommon to see them using said common areas."

Book 2

Spaces for innovation?

The author suggests a classification of SFIs, mainly grounded on a new mixed approach that he founds more suitable, on one hand taking into account the epistemological approach that refers to our perception of physical and architectonic space, as suggested by Peschl and Fundneider (2014),

and on the other hand based on the

complexity of the environments

approached by Cohendet, Grandadam

and Simon (2010). 

 

His role in the classification has not only

been to organize them, but also to rename

or name, identify and improve the determination

of their functions in relation to what should be understood as an SFI (Space for Innovation).

 

"Toker (2004) states that the idea of creating informal common areas shared by several universities research centers do not necessarily enable information exchange. The main tendency of university researchers is to stay in their research territories (offices) and it is uncommon to see them using said common areas."

Book 3

How to build a SFI?

From the innovation perspective, it is evident that space can contribute to the productivity and efficiency of groups. Also, the design of the environment allows for the development of unique abilities, as well the reconfiguration of skills for the changing

demands of support and synergy between complementary activities, according to

Moultrie, Nilsson, Dissel, and Haner (2007).

 

They argue that various innovation

environments have been created

explicitly to promote efficient creative

processes by providing design-based spaces

in the different stages of the creative process. Such facilities may include spaces dedicated to exploring different ambiances enabling reflection and evaluation.

 

"Thus, as stated by Niosi (2003), without capital, there is no innovation. It requires a strong managing team to promote the quick success of businesses, along with a verifiable prototype and a good investor by your side."
