We want to explore the potential of systemic innovation to help tackle some of the key challenges the UK currently faces. Can you help?

How to get involved:

  • Are you an expert in systems innovation? We would like to hear from you.
  • Email me, Ruth Puttick, to begin a discussion.

Over the past few years there has been growing interest in systemic innovation. 

 

We are defining this as an interconnected set of innovations, where each influences the other, with innovation both in the parts of the system and in the ways in which they interconnect.

 

Yet rather than simply theorising, we want to make this practical. We want to explore the potential of systemic innovation to help tackle some of the key challenges the UK currently faces, from supporting an ageing population to tackling unemployment. 

 

This paper is intended to generate discussion. We want to engage with the wide and diverse range of experts already working this space to help sharpen up thinking about systemic innovation and influence practical work to advance it. 

 

Please get in touch with any comments you have on the paper by emailing [email protected].
