Abstract from DBPedia
    Innovation is the practical implementation of ideas that result in the introduction of new goods or services or improvement in offering goods or services. ISO TC 279 in the standard ISO 56000:2020 defines innovation as "a new or changed entity realizing or redistributing value". Others have different definitions; a common element in the definitions is a focus on newness, improvement, and spread of ideas or technologies. Innovation often takes place through the development of more-effective products, processes, services, technologies, art worksor business models that innovators make available to markets, governments and society. Innovation is related to, but not the same as, invention: innovation is more apt to involve the practical implementation of an invention (i.e. new / improved ability) to make a meaningful impact in a market or society, and not all innovations require a new invention. Technical innovation often manifests itself via the engineering process when the problem being solved is of a technical or scientific nature. The opposite of innovation is exnovation.

    イノベーション(英: innovation)とは、物事の「新機軸」「新結合」「新しい切り口」「新しい捉え方」「新しい活用法」(を創造する行為)のこと。一般には新しい技術の発明を指すという意味に誤認されることが多いが、それだけでなく新しいアイデアから社会的意義のある新たな価値を創造し、社会的に大きな変化をもたらす自発的な人・組織・社会の幅広い変革を意味する。つまり、それまでのモノ・仕組みなどに対して全く新しい技術や考え方を取り入れて新たな価値を生み出して社会的に大きな変化を起こすことを指す。
