Understand your role in the 21st century innovation ecosystem

Coming soon

To capture the opportunities in the 4th industrial revolution and deliver on what is needed to address the global challenges facing humanity the innovation ecosystem must move from the current linear model with focus on improving existing system. It is time to build a 21st century innovation system with focus on sustainable solutions that deliver on human needs in ways that are compatible with a future where 11 billion people can live flourishing lives on a regenerative planet in balance. Such a system must be able to deliver system solutions, support exponential uptake and differentiate between tools and goals.

Innovation quadrants for 11 billion flourishing lives on a regenerative planet

In order to deliver globally sustainable solutions that allow everyone to live flourishing lives on a regenerative planet there is a need to move beyond a focus on single products and materials to system solutions. The Innovation quadrant for 11 billion flourishing lives is a way to illustrate the need to both address climate change and land-use as well as making the system solutions cost efficient. Today too many initiatives are just trying to make fossil free versions of current products, ignoring land-use and resource efficiency as well as affordability. Using the Innovation quadrant can help you move from a narrow product/material perspective to a human need driven innovation agenda with system solutions.
