iParadigm

Through the New Innovation Paradigms (iParadigm) project, IIPP will work closely with our partners at EIT Climate-KIC on their Deep Demonstrations strategic approach.

About the project

The Deep Demonstrations strategic approach aims to experiment and innovate whole systems structural and exponential change towards a green transition. The Deep Demonstration approach works with 8 geographical and thematic areas across Europe, ranging from ports, to carbon skin landscapes, food systems and financial organisations. 

We will be working across all 8 Deep Demonstrations to map innovation patterns and frame conversations around new innovation paradigms, based on the idea that economic growth and innovation do not only have a rate but also a direction. The latter is a policy choice, and requires the public sector to take dynamic action that brings about structural changes in desired directions. In each of the 8 areas, the challenge of reaching a green transition implies going beyond the currently dominant notion of policy as simply fixing existing failures in markets; policymakers need to shape and co-create markets for long-term growth and champion the importance of mission-oriented policies. This requires building new forms of competencies and adaptive dynamic capabilities inside public institutions, and the iParadigm project will work to develop these capabilities and approaches.
