HI Platform: http://www.soft-innovation.eu/


HI Platform has been developed under the framework of EU Funded project “HIDDEN – Hidden Innovation Initiatives for SMEs”.

The focus of the HI Platform is to provide insights and tools that will promote Organisational Innovation (e.g. implementation of new organisational methods in workplace) and Marketing Innovations such as significant changes in product design, packaging, promotion or pricing. Additionally, its concept covers the notion of Business Model Innovation that captures novel operations including the components and functions of the business and interactions with other entities that differentiates a company and thus puts it in a unique position in its industry.

You can also assess your SME’s Innovation Management capabilities in your market by filling in the Self Assessment Questionnaire (UNHIDEit) that you can find in the HI Platform.
