Innovation and impact are firmly embedded in British Antarctic Survey’s (BAS’s) Vision and Mission. Considerable potential exists for BAS to create impact through outward-facing innovation, and to innovate within through inventing and adopting novel technologies and processes, especially regarding the net zero carbon challenge. BAS will convert this potential through a strong innovation culture, sound self-awareness, understanding of the external landscape and targeted partnerships. Alignment of values, leveraging of assets, data and samples, and careful prioritisation will facilitate delivery of impact in a resource-constrained environment. The Aurora Innovation Centre at BAS is an enabler for impact.
