Why was TIPC formed? What is Transformative Innovation Policy? And why do we need it? Get the low-down on why the Consortium was created, the thinking behind it and what TIPC’s aims are.

Research and policy agenda for a world in transition

Professor Johan Schot, Director of SPRU explores whether we need a third frame ‘Innovation 3.0’ that focuses on mobilising the power of innovation to address a wide range of societal challenges including inequality, unemployment and climate change. This frame broadens the concept of innovation and focuses on the directions and choices implicated in socio-technical change. He also launches the Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium which, based on this new framing of innovation aims to explore the future of innovation policy – its foundation, formulation and governance. The speech was given at SPRU's 50th Anniversary Conference (September 2016).
