What is Innovation?

Innovation is about responding to a particular demand or business challenge through the development of new products or processes. It doesn’t have to be about the creation of a new idea or knowledge. You could be combining existing and new knowledge to solve a current challenge that adds value to your business.

PAPI can support equipment that enables the development of products that are new to the business or the market. We can also support process equipment as long as this leads to the development of a new product.
