The Cross Innovation Manifesto

113 Signatures Goal: 2,500


Policy is not about dictating what is best for us; it should help us find our way to better modes of being, encouraging discovery, freedom and happiness. Policy makers have to face the changing economic and cultural demands of society, with innovation critical to success. Here we present five principles that we hope will provide inspiration to those seeking to encourage new thinking.

Let's inspire the policy-makers!

The Cross Innovation Manifesto calls for:
1. Things shift, and when they do, it is not in the way planned.
2. Innovation is not simply grown in a greenhouse, it evolves in an ecosystem.
3. Being specialized is good, but learning to be special is even better.
4. New frontiers need pioneers. Innovation leaders are pioneers.
5. Innovation is a strategic, future-driven activity.

Read more about the Manifesto in the blog or on the Cross Innovation website.

The more signatures we have, the more policy-makers we can reach!

Sponsor

The Project Cross Innovation promotes collaborative and user-driven innovation that happens across sectoral, organisational, technological and geographic boundaries. Its focus rests on policies and support measures that enable cross innovation and creative spillovers between creative sectors and other industries. The partnership consists of 11 metropolitan hotspots that have the potential to put cross innovation on the top of local and regional policy agendas across Europe: Birmingham, Amsterdam, Rome, Berlin, Tallinn, Warsaw, Vilnius, Stockholm, Linz, Lisbon and Pilsen. This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and made possible by the INTERREG IVC programme.

    we need pioneers that are not interested in money, and who are willing to do with less to create more. artists, designers and architects can be an important part of that low-tech pioneering community, if they can see beyond their products. they need to get in touch with all other professions representatives with open minds and hope filled hearts. the innovation has to multidisciplinary, everyone has to play.
