    There is a need to understand ways to enhance innovations in the construction industry. It is argued that suppliers have potential to develop new innovations, but they are largely neglected in earlier construction-related research. This research focuses on suppliers' role in construction innovations, and the aim of the research is to increase understanding of practices for exploiting suppliers' potential in that context. A qualitative, explanatory research strategy is employed in the context of construction industry in Finland. Eighteen interviews are conducted with contractors to discover experiences and practices related to suppliers' potential in construction innovations. The results reveal practices for exploiting supplier's potential in construction innovations. As a key contribution, the research shows that suppliers have an important role in construction innovation but exploitation of suppliers' potential is still rather underdeveloped.
