Tackling the climate crisis requires transformative system change – a fundamental shift to place sustainability at the core of our societal systems. Thus, sustainability transitions also require a shift in policymaking towards Transformative Innovation Policy (TIP) – a new, experimental approach to policymaking. Transformative Innovation Policy aims to contribute to the sustainability transition by mobilizing necessary innovations to tackle the societal and environmental challenges encapsulated in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the same time, transformative innovation policy necessitates better take-up of science in policymaking as well as consideration of citizens’ and stakeholder needs in policy design, implementation, and learning.
In this workshop, we will cover the principles of transformative innovation policy, as well as how the use of new tools (Policy co-creation, X-Curve, Value Network Mapping, transformative theory of change) can contribute to closing the gap between science-policy-society in transformative innovation policy. We will learn about their successful application in EIT Climate-KIC’s projects.
This workshop is organised in collaboration with the Austrian Institute of Technology.
