Learn about Innovation Day

Innovation has become something of a buzzword these days, but it’s one that represents an important concept that is constantly changing the world.  Any time you come up with a new idea, a new product, or a new service that advances modern technology and finds new ways of doing things, you’ve innovated. 

Companies all over the world are constantly innovating, creating new ways for us to interact with and experience our world. Innovation Day celebrates these intrepid explorers of new ideas and what their work changes about our future.

History Of Innovation Day

The Science History Institute in conjunction with the Society of Chemical Industry regularly band together to host Innovation Day.  The holiday was created to help bring attention to those who weren’t just producing technology, but those who were pushing the envelope on what could be done and what was possible. 

These two organizations know that every new invention, every new step forward, is based on the work done by the innovators of the past. This is true today and will continue to remain true in the future.

Innovation Days can be held throughout the year by companies seeking to find opportunities to get great ideas from all throughout their infrastructure. What sets these innovators apart is that they look at present knowledge and technology and see beyond their present applications.  As society changes the use of technology changes with it, even existing technology.

This means that innovators need to be able to understand not just the present context that technology exists in, but the future implications of that technology. From this understanding, they can develop new technology that better suits the uses we put old tech to.  This understanding can also inspire new forms of technology that hadn’t previously been considered.

As innovators work the one thing that is essential is for them to think outside the box and always be looking forward.  That’s why Innovation Day was created, to represent and inspire these people to greater heights.

How To Celebrate Innovation Day

There are two major ways we suggest celebrating this holiday, and it starts with getting out a notebook and coming up with all sorts of crazy inventions that the world could use.  After that start researching the sorts of innovations that have come into the world this year in all the different fields.

Medical technologies that find new ways to battle diseases, 3D Printers used for new applications, even different ways of producing and using energy are created every year.  Celebrate Innovation Day by reading up on what has been done, and making changes of your own.
