  • The FROST Innovation Framework was created by GAS Labs ( in 2017 as a framework to help organisations create and support a structured and healthy innovation pipeline.
  • It is focussed on using IN-HOUSE staff, and in getting the best from your staff.
  • We based it on experience from new product development, innovation projects and R&D programmes during 2001-2018.
  • While it was not always called “FROST” at the time, the principles have worked well for BBC News Labs, and draw influence from BBC R&D’s excellent practises.
