2017 marked the start of a new three-year strategy for Nesta. The strategy sets out plans for how we back new ideas to tackle the big challenges of our time in five priority fields: Health, Education, Government Innovation, Innovation Policy, and The Creative Economy, Arts and Culture.

In each of these fields, we apply our expertise in methods for innovation - bringing together research, funding for practical work, convening and advocacy.
