Cross-Cutting Strands

Four cross-cutting strands – each with dedicated resources – transect the Missions to draw together and implement good practice in co-production, co-creation and impact at scale across academia, industry, policy and third sector:

  • Design & Engagement: Engage users, technologists and stakeholders in participatory and co-design processes – putting citizens, their care and usability at the heart of outcomes across missions.
  • Adoption & Adoptability: Co-develop, with stakeholders, a shared understanding of the drivers and barriers to adoption of technologies and interventions at both the organisation and citizen level – feeding requirements into projects and aligning their outcomes to stakeholders’ usage contexts.
  • Responsible, Inclusive & Ethical Innovation: Develop a collective knowledge-base of novel and innovative methods and strategies that seek to orientate the competing ethical and political demands – encouraging cultures of accountability and responsibility.
  • Policy & Regulation: Bring together UK / international regulatory and policy expertise to develop fresh thinking on optimal regulatory modes and policy interventions to reduce online harm.
