IORMA : Innovation Lab (iLab)

To keep abreast of and enable the Consumer Commerce Industry to anticipate future innovations, developments and trends (Technology based, Services based, Commercially based or Society based), IORMA provides an online Innovation Hub … researching, demonstrating and commenting upon these developments.


The IORMA iLab 0ffers IORMA Associates a neutral environment under the IORMA ‘umbrella brand’ to enable collaboration between those involved, for the creation, trial and bringing to market of new approaches and new technologies aligned with the emerging global fusion of humanity and technology.

“Creating something new by crossing boundaries, and thinking across them”

The emphasis of the IORMA iLab is on creating new approaches and new technologies.

The IORMA Innovation Lab represents both a ‘Think Tank’ approach and a ‘Doing Tank’ approach.

Topics for inclusion include many of those already within IORMA’s broader Global Consumer Commerce activities, considering both the technology aspects as well as the Societal, Economic and Legal Implications of new initiatives resulting from the work of the IORMA Innovation Lab.
