The Guide will be available in English, Hungarian, Romanian, Slovakian and Polish language version in next months. This book will support the establishment of the innovation management process in the company. It will contain the key elements of establishment, with case studies and good practices. The materials will be accessible through this website. You can subscribe our newsletter and stay in touch with it! You will never miss any updates of our content!

From the guide you can learn about the different types of innovation and the most key rules of R&D.

The national versions of the Guide are actualized and adapted to the local situation; you will find the necessary legislative references, the responsible authorities as well as the description of their specific role in the process.

The major part of the Guide is dedicated to the in depth presentation of the CEN/TS 16555-1 standard; thus we want to ensure that future innovation managers gain a full insight into the application and understand the importance of the standard in their companies. The successful implementation of the standard based IMS system depends on its adaptation to the specific case, to the peculiarities of each and every company. There is no omnipotent recipe for all companies.

The Guide doesn’t contain the CEN/TS 16555-1 standard itself; therefore we suggest buying it from the responsible local authority. The CEN/TS 16555-1 is available in national languages in many countries, while the English version can be purchased from the local authority or through internet from CENELEC’s website.
