AEA Technology will today announce an initiative to help individuals and firms bring ideas to market.

Innovation Plus `aims to match good ideas to the management skills needed to exploit market opportunities.

`It is this matching of inventiveness to commercial skills that I view as the true challenge of innovation,’ said AEA Technology chief executive Peter Watson.

Lack of technical, management, marketing, manufacturing and financial resources often prevent individuals with good ideas bringing them to market, he said.
