In 2006 NESTA presented the fi rst of fi ve reports on hidden innovation. The aim of those reports was to explain the UK paradox — namely, the fact that according to traditional indicators, Great Britain is much less innovative than other developed countries and concurrently is one of the largest economies in the world. NESTA experts, looking for the causes of this state of affairs, stated that the strength of the British economy depended to a large extent on industries where innovations are not included in traditional measures of innovation.
