A public lecture series organised by the IIPP UCL with the British Library discussed how we can rethink healthcare, green growth and new forms of data ownership
Innovation and the Welfare State is the title of a public lecture series organised by the Institute for Innovation and Public Purposes (IIPP) of the University College London (UCL) in partnership with the British Library.
The series brought together world-leading thinkers from different disciplines to discuss how we can harness the welfare state to drive innovation and deliver public value. Experts from the worlds of arts, economics, architecture, design and policymaking debated how we can rethink healthcare, green growth, public access to knowledge and new forms of data ownership as part of the 21st-century welfare state.
How to use public purpose to drive innovation-led inclusive growth is one of the topics at the core of the newly launched H2020-funded GROWINPRO project of which UCL is a partner.
From May 2nd until June 27th six roundtable sessions were chaired by either GROWINPRO researchers, and respectively IIP director and deputy director, Mariana Mazzucato and Rainer Kattel or British Library Chief Executive Roly Keating.
