An operative model for implementing missions

The government must be able to find novel solutions to the greatest challenges of our time, such as the climate crisis, new security threats, an ageing population, and technological transformations. Directional mission-driven research and innovation policy provides an approach for the government to implement its strategic objectives by solving complex challenges together with actors in different sectors. In this policy brief, we briefly present an operative model that is based on a comprehensive literature review and an empirical analysis of the Finnish context. Further, we propose routes for implementing the model in Finland.
