2017 Conference Report


The 2017 conference “Prospects for Transformative Innovation” was the inaugural conference of the Consortium. This event was the finale to our pilot programme
of activities for Transformative Innovation Policy
Consortium’s founding members. We have started
to test ideas and rationales; built strong, productive
relationships; and most crucially, begun to identify
the directions to go and the diffcult questions to
ask. We may be a long way from the answers, but
the exploration for fresh policy thinking and practice
in Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) has
commenced with commitment and rigour. While
daunting on one level, it is the distance we have to
travel that is the most thrilling part.
