Research agenda key enabling metholologies (KEMS) for mission-driven innovation
Global social challenges demand innovation. These large-scale and complex challenges require a multidisciplinary approach, in which technological innovation goes hand in hand with social impact. To this end, the acquisition of fundamentally new insights for, and the application and development of key technologies and methodologies are indispensable.
The research agenda Key Methodologies is part of the KIA Key Technologies 2020-2023. It sets out a broad definition of key enabling methodologies (KEMs) and presents the most relevant categories of KEMs for mission-driven innovation:
- Vision and imagination
- Participation and co-creation
- Behaviour and empowerment
- Experimental environments
- Value creation and upscaling
- Institutional change
- System change
- Monitoring and effect measurement
For each of these categories it has been mapped which methods are available, what the scientific state of affairs is and which themes and research questions are most urgent for tackling the missions.
