The UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose (IIPP) is changing how public value is imagined, practiced and evaluated to tackle societal challenges.
The mission of the UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose (IIPP) is to change how public value is imagined, practiced and evaluated to tackle societal challenges — delivering economic growth that is innovation-led, sustainable and inclusive.
Growth has not only a rate but also a direction: IIPP confronts this directionality head on. Finding solutions to global challenges requires purposeful organisations to collaborate in fundamentally new ways—across the state, businesses and civil society. Together, they can help reshape markets to produce growth that delivers public value. Building symbiotic eco-systems requires new tools and new forms of collaborations.
IIPP rethinks the role of the state in these collaborations. Rather than just a market fixer, it can be an active co-creator of value. A mission-oriented approach can be used to set inspirational goals, with dynamic tools—from procurement to prize schemes—to nurture bottom up experimentation and exploration across different sectors. IIPP’s research and teaching helps create the new economic thinking and practical tools to make this a reality.
In order to achieve this mission, IIPP works across a number of key areas:
