This event is a Theoretical Foundations session within TIPC’s Open Learning Series. We welcome Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) funders, researchers, and policy practitioners both from within and outside the core TIPC network. Language of delivery is English.

 In this session, we will revisit the Transformative Innovation Policy principles, focusing on the Multi-Level Perspective and the notion of Transformative Outcomes.

We will explore different ways in which a project, program or policy can trigger transformation, and look into the co-construction of flexible theories of change as the base device for monitoring, evaluation and learning processes.

We will also reflect upon the methodological and implementation challenges of the TIP formative evaluation framework for experimentation, through specific examples – and in interaction with the audience.

This TIPC session will be led by Diana Velasco (INGENIO (CSIC-UPV)), Rob Byrne (SPRU) and Christina Miariti (SPRU).
