Impact assessments, case studies and inventory of mission-oriented initiatives

The Joint Institute for Innovation Policy (JIIP) with its members have conducted 2 studies to support the development of a mission-oriented approach in European research and innovation.

These studies include an inventory and characterisation of past initiatives as well as an assessment of the impact a mission-oriented research and innovation approach would have.

As part of the work for these studies, a number of individual case studies were developed examining previous and current examples of mission-oriented research and innovation policies.
