5 Definitions: 1. An innovation is the implementation of a new or significantly improved product (good or service), or process, a new marketing method, or a new organizational method in business (Oslo Manual, 3rd edition, 2005) (Oslo Manual, 3rd edition, 2005) 2. Innovation is the successful exploitation of a new idea (Mind to market), (Dr R A Mashelkar ) (Dr R A Mashelkar ) 3. Doing things differently having an impact 1. Introduction to innovation

6 Main types of innovation Product innovation Product innovation Process innovation Process innovation Marketing innovation Marketing innovation Organizational innovation Organizational innovation Radical Innovation Radical Innovation Incremental innovation Incremental innovation

7 2. Why Sri Lanka stepped into measuring innovation? Innovation is one of dominant factors in national economic growth Innovation is one of dominant factors in national economic growth Invest in innovation and its return on national productivity Invest in innovation and its return on national productivity A task for government is to create a conducive environment for firms to engage in innovative activities A task for government is to create a conducive environment for firms to engage in innovative activities Emphasis on the innovative and knowledge-creating activities when develop policy framework Emphasis on the innovative and knowledge-creating activities when develop policy framework To track vital conditions for innovation over time To track vital conditions for innovation over time To improve the innovation process To improve the innovation process

8 agricultural insecurity agricultural insecurity infectious and chronic diseases with global spread infectious and chronic diseases with global spread developing a low carbon economy developing a low carbon economy adapting to climate change adapting to climate change Common/shared problems to rich and poor Challenge before scientists/technologists

9 Innovation systems are expected to serve country's poverty reduction and economic growth agendas Scientists participate in global innovation systems Result based R & D framework Strengthening science innovation systems Strengthening science innovation systems In all these activities, we need to know about the present status of innovation and therefore, we need to measure the innovation In all these activities, we need to know about the present status of innovation and therefore, we need to measure the innovation Need for Innovation survey was identified in 2006 by the NSF Man constraint was lack of trained staff On-the-ground implementation – 2010 Can innovations bring common solutions Can innovations bring common solutions?

10 Goal 1. Science, Technology and Innovation for economic development Goal 2 A world-class national research and innovation eco-system Science, Technology and Innovation strategy for Sri Lanka

11 to identify factors hampering and encouraging innovations to identify factors hampering and encouraging innovations to assess the needs of industry in respect to innovation to assess the needs of industry in respect to innovation 3. Sri Lanka National Innovation Survey (SLNIS 1) 3.1 Objectives

16 Number of questionnaire 1 sent – 3,100 Number of questionnaire 1 sent – 3,100 Number of responses received Number of responses received Response Rate - 11% Response Rate - 11% Number of questionnaire 2 sent Number of questionnaire 2 sent Number of responses received – 34 Number of responses received – 34 Response Rate - 12% Response Rate - 12% 3.5 Progress & way forward

17 3.6 Lessons learnt so far One-stop-shop for information about industries One-stop-shop for information about industries More awareness about innovation before the survey More awareness about innovation before the survey More awareness about the innovation survey and its benefits to industry More awareness about the innovation survey and its benefits to industry Sending reminders to enhance response rate Sending reminders to enhance response rate A direct telephone and preparedness to respond for clarifications from industry during the survey A direct telephone and preparedness to respond for clarifications from industry during the survey

18 4. Conclusion Innovation is a vital element in the knowledge based economy Innovation is a vital element in the knowledge based economy Measuring of innovation is required to understand factors that influence process of innovation as well as policy formulation Measuring of innovation is required to understand factors that influence process of innovation as well as policy formulation Sri Lanka has identified the importance of innovation and it has been included in the five year S & T strategy Sri Lanka has identified the importance of innovation and it has been included in the five year S & T strategy Innovation survey- Sri Lanka is in the learning curve Innovation survey- Sri Lanka is in the learning curve Innovation survey- so far a satisfactory progress has been achieved Innovation survey- so far a satisfactory progress has been achieved
