Knowledge Innovation:
“Knowledge Innovation” means both to change the society by generating and sharing new knowledge and to structuring knowledge leading to the change here. “Technology Innovation” has the same meaning to some extent but “Knowledge Innovation” reflects the fact that it is necessary to innovate knowledge not only on technology but also on knowledge in general for achieving global sustainability in the 21st century.
