Concept selected: Acquisition or lease of tangible assets for innovation
DefinitionThe acquisition or lease of tangible assets can be innovation activities in their own right, such as when a firm purchases or leases equipment with significantly different characteristics than the existing equipment that it uses for its business processes.
