Towards enabling disruptive innovation in a diffuse funding and resources landscape



The purpose of this paper is to offer a “handbook at-a-glance” for enabling disruptive innovation in a diffuse geo-political and economic landscape. That is, to identify the enabling parameters for economy-revitalizing innovation in a geo- economically diffuse area. It is assumed that there are multiple parallel funding streams and resources allocation mechanisms, multiple political systems, diffuse legal and regulatory frameworks, and tight budgetary constraints and control. Our approach is inspired by systems biology and ecology-thinking. A five-step implementation plan is proposed, using research infrastructures as a co-innovation platform. An order of magnitude for required investments is given, as well as an expected multiplication factor over a time period of five years. We also offer a concrete example.
