Mission-driven Research and Innovation

Government Science and Innovation in the New Normal

Discussion Paper

Patrick Galvin and Jeff Kinder | November 2022

The purpose of this discussion paper is to explore the concept of mission-driven research and innovation in the context of government science and innovation. The paper is divided into four sections: the first section defines the concept of mission-driven innovation, the second section further explores the concept through the example of the Apollo moon mission, and the third section attempts to build on this high-level thinking to describe how the concept works in practice and highlight associated governance challenges. The final section offers several questions to guide further research.
