We Want Mazzucato

Aurora Brief Reviews No. 01 January 8 2019

January 2019

The European Commission has published an Analysis Report of the Responses to the “Mission-Oriented Research & Innovation in the European Union” by Mariana Mazzucato. The report shows broad support among the various stakeholders for the Mazzucato criteria and implementation aspects and slightly less for the citizen involvement (see also the Statement on Citizen Involvement in research agenda setting). The report visualizes the frequency of themes in the missions proposed, with Digitilisation (13%), Health & Wellbeing (10%) and Social & economic transformation (10%) gaining the two-digit scores. Missions more directly related to global warming and global climate change received much less priority from the stakeholders!
