This paper studies the Front End of Eco-Innovation (FEEI), the initial phase of the eco-innovation process. Incorporating environmental concerns at the front-end of innovation is important, as product parameters are still flexible. This paper investigates the FEEI for 42 small and medium sized eco-innovators in the Netherlands by using a survey. Buy Hollister Canada
The results show that SMEs embrace informal, systematic, and open innovation approaches at the FEEI. Hollister Clothing Coupons
Teams appear to be multidisciplinary, and creativity and environmental knowledge are essential. Experimentation played a significant role at the FEEI. The paper concludes with recommendations for future research and implications for managers.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the preferred technique for examining intracranial pathology in the non-acute setting in most cases. The aim of this review is to demonstrate the imaging appearances on unenhanced spin-echo MRI of lesions that show characteristic, unusual signal changes, which occur due to the presence of fat, cholesterol, paramagnetic substances, rapidly flowing fluids, air, cortical bone or calcification. The nature of the MRI signal, together with the anatomical location of the lesion should allow the provision of a narrow differential diagnosis, before the use of intravenous contrast medium or additional imaging sequences.
