This year the 2018 conference theme is Innovation for Transformation.

We will also further debate, co-create and formulate to add new layers of knowledge to our emerging theory and practice.

2017 Conference

The inaugural 2017 TIPC conference was hosted by the South African National Research Foundation (NRF) in partnership with the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium. The two-day event looked at “Prospects for Transformative Innovation Policy” and brought together all five original members to share learnings and achievements from the pilot year.  All five members renewed their commitment to TIPC for a further five years, thus marking their transition from the exploratory phase to the core programme.
