IN­­CHER Col­­­lo­qui­um: In­no­va­ti­on, trans­for­ma­ti­on and the ro­le of the sta­te

Professor Dr. Jakob Edler (Fraunhofer-Institut für System- und Innovationsforschung ISI, Karlsruhe und Manchester Institute of Innovation)

In recent years, the role of the state regarding the key transformations of our economy and society has been discussed very intensively. This has led to a shift in research and innovation policy towards so-called "mission-orientation". This basically means that research and innovation policy instruments should be designed in such a way that knowledge and innovation contribute to achieving concrete economic and social goals ("missions") - a further development of the state's intervention logic in research and innovation policy. My talk will discuss this development and its particular challenges on a conceptual level, also addressing the possible consequences of a mission-orientation for research organisations and funding agencies.
