Workshop: GROUP 3 Innovation

Appoint a “rapporteur” for your group who will make sure the main notes are written on the forum. Any participant can also add to the forum discussion at any time or like a reply. There will be three questions for each concept:

  1. How would you define this concept?
  2. What are some practical examples where this concept is used/important?
  3. What are the main controversies or debates surrounding this concept?

Please add the corresponding number before your reply in the topic thread where possible.
