The Knowledge and Innovation Agenda Social Earning Capacity (KIA MV) aims to accelerate the upscaling of innovation and thereby achieve greater social impact. The KIA MV organises the improvement, development and application of methodologies, work forms and models for successful mission-driven innovation. In doing so, it strengthens the thematic Knowledge and Innovation Agendas in the Mission-driven Top Sectors and Innovation Policy (MTIB) and the safety mission.
Strategy KIA MV: tackling area-specific problems
The KIA MV is based on an area-oriented approach. At the local level, social problems are tangible and there is an urgency to act. Tasks usually coincide here, for example nutrition, care and safety. Within regions, experiments and innovations are carried out in specific innovation ecosystems. These partnerships of companies, governments, citizens, knowledge institutions and interest groups are used to multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder collaboration and are therefore a valuable source of knowledge and expertise.
The KIA MV will map the characteristics of mission-driven innovation and the need for improved or new knowledge. To this end, regional innovation clusters are involved, which already have the characteristics of mission-driven innovation. An inventory is made of the methods used, types of citizen participation, revenue models, tools, governance and financing models and other aspects that determine the dynamics of these ecosystems.
The inventory of success factors, bottlenecks and knowledge questions forms the basis for multi-year scientific and practice-oriented research. Innovation methods are improved, developed, tested and validated. In order to subsequently organise and support its application and thus the upscaling of innovation in Dutch innovation clusters programmatically.
