The IET & MIA launch collaborative Horizontal Innovation initiative

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) have launched their collaborative Horizontal Innovation initiative.

Working together in partnership, the two hope to promote a more widespread exploitation of horizontal innovation across the nation’s business technology community.

According to the IET, horizontal innovation represents the “effective transfer of knowledge and technology form one sector to another”; something that currently happens on an ad-hoc basis in the UK.
