For 16 years, Innovation Toronto has posted daily selections from the multitude of important research and development announcements published by universities, research institutes and science | technology media from around the world.
Innovation Toronto publishes stories and announcements that, in our opinion, have the potential to change our lives – or, to indicate different approaches or ways of thinking. While focusing as much as possible on opportunities, we do not shy away from the challenges and potential threats from rapid change. Overall, after 15+ years of observation, we are cautiously optimistic.
The selections are intended to expand awareness and interest in new ideas and approaches while providing an overview of global innovation and discovery. The big hope is that it will help get everyone more interested in science and how research and discoveries can and do affect our everyday lives. We are moving rapidly from science fiction to science friction and there is a real need to understand what may be coming next to help ensure a quality future for all.
We don’t attempt to categorize innovation: our only “filter” is what we pick to highlight and post. This site is most useful to visitors focused on search via keywords and phrases to assist them to find what they are specifically looking for or just to have fun and explore new ideas or approaches along with the latest updates on old challenges.
We are working backwards through 21,000+ posts to update and add to previous materials. So, regardless of how old the actual post is, you will always have access to the latest updates on each topic. We hope this makes each visit worthwhile even if the original article is somewhat out-of-date. We appreciate your patience as it is going to take our volunteers some time to get through all of the edits.

*Innovation is often thought of as the work of a solitary inventor or a small team of researchers, but in reality, true innovation often results from a collaborative effort involving a diverse group of people with different perspectives and skills. This can include individuals from different industries, disciplines, and backgrounds, all working together to solve a problem or create something new. By bringing together a variety of perspectives and skills, a group can identify new opportunities, generate more ideas, and improve upon existing ones. Additionally, group activities can foster a sense of community and creativity, which is essential for real innovation.”
