Throughout 2018 and 2019, academic scholars and policymakers involved in research and practice on science, technology and innovation (STI) policy came together on several occasions to explore intersections of their perspectives around the emerging ‘Transformative Innovation Policy (TIP)’ theme, in the ‘internetwork dialogue’. This working paper presents discussion on ten questions raised in multiple sessions and workshops, categorised under three main themes – 1) conceptualisation, 2) actors and contexts and 3) operationalisation of TIP. The aim of this paper is to present the rich quality and diversity of knowledge shared by over 100 scholars with transdisciplinary expertise, as well as policy professionals willing to contribute practical experience to the scholarly debates. A further aim of this paper is to provide a springboard for accelerating the ongoing developments in TIP research. A virtual conference in 2021 could build on these different streams of knowledge presented in the paper. The paper seeks further contributions from the new network of TIP scholars (TIPRN) in building a vibrant community of practise on TIP.
