Marc Ventresca convenes three Oxford-affiliated researchers whose work plays a critical role in this rethink about the agenda for innovation.
Despite Schumpeter’s admonitions, much of ‘innovation’ practice and research in recent decades has de facto emphasised technology primary activity in sector after sector.

The unsettled nature of these early decades of the 21st century provides reasons to reflect and rethink that focus, with critical innovations in civil society, infrastructure, and the firm that highlight ‘beyond the tech’.  We learn both from this history and with an eye on the Fourth Industrial Revolution emerging technologies that refocus on questions of governance and ethics.

We live in times when distributional equity foregrounds agendas and issues that go hand in hand with growth. And in times when the primacy of the corporation now works directly with renewed attention to the role of state actors and others in building markets and shaping well-being.
