Importance of governance in a mission-oriented approach to policy

Paris | ESIEE Paris • 07 Jun 2018

During the annual EU-SPRI conference that takes place from 6 to 9 June 2018 at the ESIEE in Paris there will be a special session with presentations on mission-oriented research and innovation policy. On Thursday 7 June 2018 TNO researchers Arjen Goetheer and Frans van der Zee will make a presentation in which they elaborate on the importance of governance for a successful implementation of a mission-oriented approach to policy.

Essential factors are clear and mission-appropriate governance structures and the right mix of policy instruments, including flanking measures, such as regulation. All existing expertise and knowledge, often based on earlier research and embedding in existing scientific and innovation systems, can increase the likelihood of success.
