transformative Innovation Policy Consortium (TIPC)
Johan Schot is founder and academic director of the Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium (TIPC). TIPC is a global network of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) researchers, policymakers and funding agencies. They work together to explore how STI policy can contribute to “transformative system change” and thereby address global societal challenges as encapsulated in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Professor Schot announces TIPCs launch
Bridging The Science (STI) Policy Gap
One of TIPC’s main aims is closing the gap between science and policymakers in which particular focus is laid upon Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) policy. Why a focus on STI policy? Because it was technological revolutions and industrial modernity that have contributed to current socio-technical systems tremendously.

Members & Associates
TIPC is a five-year programme. Since its launch in 2016, TIPC has acquired members and associates from ten different countries and formed three Hubs which carry out operations on a regional level. Currently, TIPC consists of innovation ministries and funding agencies from Colombia, Finland, Norway, South Africa and Sweden with additional associate programmes ongoing in China, Brazil, Senegal, Ghana, and Kenya.
The three frames of Innovation
TIPC’s foundation is based on Johan Schot and Ed Steinmueller’s well received ‘Three Frames of Innovation’ (2018) paper. By now, this paper has been downloaded more than 50,000 times and translated into Spanish, French and Chinese.
