    Innovation is seen as a key factor in economic competitiveness and persons who can contribute to and participate in innovation are much wanted. Consequently adult education as well as other parts of educational systems is confronted with demands that the learning environments and the teaching should foster creative and innovative qualities in students. Creative and innovative competence can be defined as a person's ability to carry out processes of innovation that contributes something recognized as new to a given domain of knowledge and practice. In the years 2001-2006 the several Danish ministries undertook to map the competences of the population. One of the ten competences which the survey tried to measure was ‘creative and innovative competence'. The paper tries to draw out some results and discuss their implications for adult education. As an illustration a cooperation and communication course in a metal works factory is presented and discussed.
