The Novum Manifesto

A manifesto is a written statement of the beliefs, aims and policies, a set of ideas and plans of a group of people, a written statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, and views of its issuer. This is the Novum Institute’s Manifesto. This is what we are all about. Why is this important? The answer lies in the value and respect that knowledge and innovation commands. It lies in our credo that knowledge and innovation applied, shared and realized for the benefit of others is knowledge and innovation fulfilled.

Our Roots

The Novum Institute’s roots go back some 400 years to the English philosopher Sir Francis Bacon, and his belief in the value and power of acquiring and applying clear and demonstrative knowledge.

Sir Francis Bacon, 1561-1626, is the creator of the modern scientific method, and of technology transfer. Francis Bacon wrote a number of publications on reorganizing the natural sciences, the most important of which was the Novum Organum, written in 1620, and The New Atlantis, written in 1626.
