Innovation is one of the major processes shaping the health-technology-society relation: innovation of technologies, of healthcare systems, of the very meaning of health and its absence. This section draws on extracts from five of the HTS books, which, in their different ways, examine innovation and its meaning, especially how innovation processes are shaped by different contexts and practices. Other books in the Series also explore innovation processes. But these five have been selected as they cast particularly valuable light on some of the most important issues and challenges we need to consider when thinking about innovation.
