In the 21st century, innovation—introducing something new—mostly derives from technological advances. Innovation drives the modern economy, leading to gains in productivity and prosperity. In order for a community to realize such gains, it must provide a foundation for innovation.

The foundation includes a strong educational system, a solid physical infrastructure, a base of research and development activities, innovator access to financial resources, and other factors. Science and engineering—in the educational system and in the workforce—are of particular importance. Indicators of human capital, financial capital, and high-technology activities are presented in the Innovation section of Arizona Indicators.
