Find out what we're currently working on, and how our work is divided into seven complementary themes.

Innovation is the way we talk about having new ideas and making them happen. In this publication you'll find an overview of:

  • What we're working on
  • Our seven overarching themes
  • A selection of our key projects

Innovation is widely recognised by governments across the world as crucial not just to economic growth but also to greater human happiness and social justice. But many of the systems that support innovation aren’t working well. Our research shows that innovation investment is stagnating in business; that some fields are generating fewer good ideas than in the past; and that important sectors lack capacities for innovation.

People with potentially world–changing ideas still face innumerable barriers.


We exist to tackle these challenges and to help you bring your great idea to life.
