Innovation is a broad topic with multiple subfields and competing frameworks. This chapter therefore gets disparate readers onto the same page and speaking the same language. It simultaneously introduces terms and concepts for nonexperts. To this end, it establishes working definitions and boundaries for the subsequent chapters. It also briefly explains and justifies the innovation measures and data used in the book.

Keywords:   innovation, science, technology, data, measures, invention, patents, publications, technological change, scientific progress
