TIPC organised its first Transformative Innovation Learning Journey in May at the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex Business School, UK to begin implementing TIP in Action in the TIPC member countries.
Over three days participants from Colombia, Ghana, Finland, Norway, South Africa and Sweden worked trans-nationally and engage with the theory and concepts underpinning the TIP approach, considering how to apply this in practice to their contexts. A TIP learning journal offered the opportunity to record reflections throughout the week and practice-based exercises combined with follow-on project work enables the learning to continue back home with the support of mentors.
Participants will re-convene, present and receive feedback on their projects at the TIPC annual conference and engagement week in Valencia, Spain November 6th, 2019. This journey has been organised in collaboration with EIT Climate KIC and benefits from many of the tools and participatory approaches developed by its Transitions Hub.
