It seems redundant to say that innovation isn’t just about microscopes, big computers, or data projections on modern screens, but it’s always worth remembering that anyone can innovate.
Research, development and innovation (R+D+i) projects, for example, are methods used by companies to improve and develop new products and processes in various sectors.
In Brazil, the Inova Talents program, from the Euvaldo Lodi Institute (IEL), is one of the channels for promoting R+D+i projects.

Firstly, R+D+i projects include scientific research, applied research, experimental development and technological innovation.
Usually, the team that develops and implements these projects is made up of highly trained or technical researchers, who prepare the business plan in advance. According to the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards (ABNT) 16502 and the experience of the companies, the development and innovation research project needs to detail the following topics:
- project scope
- Goal Details
- expected results
- Risk Assessment Update
- The method to use in the implementation.
- Define roles, powers and responsibilities.
- Plan the logical sequence of activities.
- Technical solutions and resources to be used in the project
- Determine the necessary means.
- Create the physical table
- Determine monitoring, supervision and evaluation mechanisms
It seems complicated for anyone who does not face this type of work every day, but it is not that seven-headed bug. After all, an R+D+i project can result in a new product or process or an improvement on something that already exists, providing more practicality and savings to the company.
