IIPP is a department within UCL and part of The Bartlett faculty, known internationally for its radical thinking about space, design, and sustainability. The work of the UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose (IIPP) is influencing global policy decisions and creating new policy collaborations to deliver public value-driven innovations. IIPP is founded and directed by Mariana Mazzucato, who holds the Chair in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value. Our team brings together an interdisciplinary group of cutting edge academics and practitioners with global experience. The mission of IIPP is to change how public value is imagined, practiced and evaluated to tackle societal challenges—and, by doing this, deliver economic growth that is innovation-led, sustainable and inclusive. IIPP rethinks the state. We challenge people to imagine a new role for the public sector as an ambitious and entrepreneurial partner with the private sector. Public organisations should not only fix markets, but actively co-create and shape markets. Markets can be shaped by purposeful policy. Markets can be designed to deliver public value. We help global policy makers discover better solutions to complex problems — in areas like industrial strategy, innovation policy, economic development, and institutional design.
Through our research, IIPP aims to help create new economic thinking and practical tools for the public sector to co-create and co-shape markets through public purpose-led missions. With this mission at its core, IIPP's research tackles the complex relationships between economic, technological, and social changes, covering four pillars of inquiry: 1. Rethinking value: challenging existing theories of value, to create a new framework to understand how value can be created and shared. 2. Shaping innovation: considering how to steer scientific and technological advances to tackle societal challenges 3. Transforming institutions: examining how we can create public purpose-driven institutions. 4. Directing finance: developing patient, strategic finance mechanisms for sustainable, investment-led growth. We use these pillars to find solutions in areas such as health innovation, green economy, space economy, digital transformation, data, and artificial intelligence.
