Who we are
Established in 1974, the Institute of Inventors and Innovators is a voluntary organisation, and a registered non-profit company whose main focus is educating and supporting the independent inventor.
“The greatest invention of the 19th century was the invention of the method of invention.” Alfred North Whitehead.
