Visualising innovation information in Scottish sectors for the Can Do Innovation Forum
This summer, I was asked to support the Scotland CAN DO Innovation Forum with some data visualisation work. The Forum has been working with its members, representing key employment sectors in Scotland, to better understand innovation. What does innovation look like? How does it manifest in different sectors? And how can we support innovation . . .
