Transfer of Innovation
The Leonardo TOI scheme both recognises successful innovations and gives an opportunity for the innovators to share their results. This is especially valuable where the innovation may have limited value commercially but still has great benefits for those who are failing to integrate into society. In other words, where public benefits outweigh the commercial benefits.
Talent 4... is intended for those who feel themselves somewhat adrift, who are lacking direction. It works from the premise that self-knowledge is an aid to that process of finding vocation. In this way it has a wide scope for application; it is not UK-centric. Nor does it require for the learner to have English as a first language. The programme does not even depend on numeracy or literacy as a precondition for participation. Hence its suitability for transference between national borders and across age ranges.
