Nesta and IIPP's work on rethinking public value

Nesta and IIPP rethink the creation and evaluation of public value at a collaborative event

Nesta and IIPP hosted an event at Nesta’s headquarters in London to launch new papers which explore and rethink public value in the 21st century. The event was chaired by Jonathan Breckon, the head of Nesta’s Alliance for Useful Evidence. Presenting to a full-house, IIPP Director Mariana Mazzucato and Nesta Chief Executive Geoff Mulgan spoke about how we have created and measured public value in the past, and why we need to rethink this approach in order to tackle the biggest societal challenges of our time. They were then followed by a discussion with Breckon and Josh Ryan-Collins, IIPP’s Head of Research.
