Part of Innovation and the Welfare State

Green growth needs to be directed: but by whom? What sort of new collaborations across society can stimulate a bold agenda for a Green New Deal? Join a debate between Mariana Mazzucato (Value of Everything), Kate Raworth (Doughnut Economics), and Carlota Perez (Technological Revolutions and Finance Capital). 

This event is chaired by IIPP Director Mariana Mazzucato. Mariana is Professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University College London (UCL). She is winner of the 2018 Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought and named as one of the 'three most important thinkers about innovation' by the New Republic. She is the author of highly acclaimed books The Entrepreneurial State and The Value of Everything, which was shortlisted for the 2018 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year prize.

Kate Raworth is a renegade economist focused on exploring the economic mindset needed to address the 21st century’s social and ecological challenges, and is the creator of the Doughnut of Social and Planetary Boundaries. She is a Senior Visiting Research Associate at Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute and is the author of the critically acclaimed book, Doughnut Economics.

Carlota Perez studies the socio-economic impact of major technological change. Author of the influential Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital, she is Honorary Professor at IIPP and at SPRU, University of Sussex, a Visiting Professor at LSE and at TalTech, Estonia. Carlota’s current research project analyses the historical role of government in shaping the context for innovation.

Part of the Innovation and the Welfare State series, a dynamic new lecture series that explores how we can deliver public value through innovation. The series brings world-leading thinkers to debate how we can rethink healthcare, green growth, public access to knowledge and new forms of data ownership as part of the 21st-century welfare state.

This event is delivered in partnership with the Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose (IIPP). IIPP is a department within UCL and part of The Bartlett faculty known internationally for its radical thinking about space, design and sustainability. IIPP’s mission is to change how public value is imagined, practiced and evaluated to tackle societal challenges—and, by doing this, deliver economic growth that is innovation-led, sustainable and inclusive.

Free | Ticket required | Venue opens at 18.00 and entry is subject to room capacity
