Members will seek to examine and embed TIP through strategies and initiatives within their particular aims and contexts.
For some, this includes a strong link to the role that science, technology and innovation policy plays in implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For others, it will mean a focus on Regional Innovation, Grassroots Innovation, Challenge-led Innovation, or Responsible Research & Innovation (RRI). Within the Consortium, we are examining a range of opportunities to create ‘Innovation For Transformation’.
We are also pleased to welcome new organizations embarking on exploratory work for TIP – these include: the National Council of Science and Technology of Mexico (CONAYCT); the Chinese Academy of Science and Technology for Development (CASTED); and the National Council Of Science, Technology And Innovation of Panama, (SENACYT).
It has been an exciting initial year for TIPC and we look forward to 2018 being just as rewarding, challenging and stimulating. We look to deepen the collaborations we have established and to developing new partnerships with the opportunity for further co-production and deep learning on this important new framing for innovation.
