Nesta Sparks: Innovation mapping - 29 Apr 2020 12:30 p.m. – 29 Apr 2020 2:30 p.m.

What is the event?

This Nesta Sparks event focuses on innovation mapping. Innovation mapping uses new data sources, data science methods and visualisation tools to help policymakers navigate complex innovation systems, helping answer questions such as: “Where is innovation happening? Who is doing it? What do we do about it?” with unprecedented levels of precision and timeliness.

What is Nesta Sparks?

As part of our Insight event series, Nesta Sparks share Nesta’s practical knowledge around different ways to innovate. Each of the 14 Nesta Sparks sessions focus on a different method, whether it’s crowdfunding, challenge prizes, standards of evidence, or public and social innovation labs.

Who is it for and why should I come?

This event on innovation mapping offers you the opportunity to come together with other practitioners and experts to share knowledge and perspectives and to learn from Nesta’s work.

You’ll hear Nesta staff in conversation with other practitioners about how these innovation approaches are being used in practice, and you’ll have the chance to network and ask further questions.

Tickets are available at £7, which includes a light lunch and refreshments.

To find out about other innovation methods that are being tried and tested at Nesta, come to any of our 14 Nesta Sparks events.
