With challenges like climate change, cancer and pandemics, and ambitious goals like sustainable transport and clean oceans, short-term, single stakeholder approaches are no longer sufficient. Mission-oriented innovation has become one of the most significant vehicles for tackling complex challenges. How do you avoid lock-in when setting and designing missions that are adaptive and open to experimentation? How do futures and foresight methodologies fit into missions and is it possible to future-proof a mission? This session discusses the role of the state in shaping missions by convening and coordinating actors around wicked issues that require long-term, future-oriented governance.
