The scope of Innovation Survey is "new" for the enterprise as stated in the Oslo Manual. In other words, a new or significantly improved product, service or a production process is sufficient to be "new" to the enterprise. The discovery of a source of raw material or completely reconstruction of industry is beyond of the scope.
The manual collects the types of innovation carried out by enterprises under four headings:

1. Product innovation
