As you, of course, already knew, at Innovation Origins you are in the company of thousands of other well-informed readers. This website brings you all the news about new technology, innovation, and the people behind it, from all over Europe on a daily basis. People who prefer to think in terms of solutions rather than problems and – like us – want to leave the world a little better, smarter, and cleaner. The interest in our products has been there for as long as we exist (5 years now) but has grown explosively in the last year. In fact, we are celebrating a milestone this month: for the first time, our stories have been read more than 1 million times in one month’s time. Given this year’s growth curve, the end is far from there.
