In 2019, Vinnova started an experimental process to design mission-oriented policies for mobility and food challenges guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In December 2019, the agency engaged with TIPC researchers to apply the TIPC approach to evaluation with two aims: 1) explore the practical use of the TOs and the construction of flexible ToCs to stay focused on transformation, inducing second-order learning, reflexivity and anticipation along the process; and enhance the transformative potential of Vinnova’s approach to mission-oriented innovation policy. These goals are coherent with the aims of TIPC work in-country: to create cross-learning processes for the TIPC members; provide tools and pathways to address global societal challenges in situ; and develop and test methodologies, theories and tools as a continuous co-creating process tailored to the country’s needs.
