Research and innovation strategies are the pillars of Europe’s 2030 strategy: achieving growth that is smart, inclusive and sustainable. Key to this process is providing a direction for change, while also enabling bottom up experimentation and exploration. Directions for innovation can be guided towards the grand challenges facing societies, whether decarbonising the economy, develop sustainable agriculture or tackling modern care problems. Missions are ways to frame the challenges into concrete problems that will require multiple actors to work together in new ways. Focussing on problems, rather than sectors can help rebalance economies that are over-reliant on few sectors and achieve transformational change by identifying and articulating missions that not just can galvanise but also transform production, distribution, and consumption patterns across various sectors in new directions. Addressing such challenges depends crucially on investments by both private and public actors, and much more.

Missions provide a massive opportunity to increase the impact of European research and innovation, grasp the public imagination and make real progress on complex challenges. I hope this report will assist policy makers in designing and implementing the European missions of the future, as well as nurture a new belief amongst EU citizens about what real collaboration across Europe can achieve. I thank everyone who has contributed for their engagement and dedication, which has given me a palpable sense of how powerful missions can be at bringing people together around ambitious common goals.

The United Kingdom has a proud history in science and innovation. Over many years British scientists have made discoveries that have opened the eyes of humanity to secrets about ourselves, our world, and places and times beyond what we knew before. British innovators have applied these ideas – and those of others – to transform the way we live now. We are one of the most prolific nations on earth for scientific discoveries, and we regularly attain a level of excellence, and therefore influence, beyond what others achieve. Although we collectively invest less than some other nations in research and development, we have become one of the countries recognised as a particularly fruitful place in which to innovate and we obtain high returns for every pound invested. While the importance of science and innovation go beyond the economic – they elevate and improve mankind and offer rewards that are beyond price – any nation should ask itself how it will earn its living in the future. The answer must be to build on our strengths, where those strengths are likely to be sources of advantage in the future. That is why science and innovation are at the heart of our long-term economic plan. Our aim is to be the best place in the world for science and business. Our plan to achieve this has 6 elements: 1 Deciding priorities 2 Nurturing scientific talent 3 Investing in our scientific infrastructure 4 Supporting research 5 Catalysing innovation 6 Participating in global science and innovation

Germany is a country of innovation. We have made a name for ourselves worldwide with innovative products and services. Our economy is one of the ten most research-intensive economies in the world. A great deal has been invested in achieving this leading position. Since the launch of the first High-Tech Strategy in 2006, investment in research and development has increased by more than 30 billion euros. Germany is thus one of the few EU countries to have almost reached the 3 per cent target of the Europe 2020 strategy ahead of schedule. But what will the future bring – what are our perspectives, goals and opportunities? We want Germany to remain a country in which commitment and inventiveness thrive, in which quality of life and solidarity, prosperity and sustainable development continue to grow through innovation. But to achieve this, we must act today. After all, we are not only facing grand challenges, but must also deal with rapid technological change and fierce international competition. With the High-Tech Strategy 2025, the Federal Government is therefore setting ambitious targets. On the one hand, financially: Together with the Federal States and the private sector, we aim to increase spending on research and development to 3.5 per cent of the gross domestic product by 2025. On the other hand, in terms of content: We want to make knowledge more effective, turning ideas into innovations that are successful worldwide and benefit the people. To do this, we support creative ideas, excellent research, and an effective transfer of new findings and technologies into practice. We will promote open forms of innovation and the development of breakthrough innovations with the potential to open up entirely new markets and tap into further social potential. To advance research and innovation, we must also strengthen education. Making Germany fit for the future – to do this, we need top professionals in addition to a state-of-the-art technology base. That is why we will always invest in training and further education wherever new technologies and processes are fostered. It is only in this way that we can prepare ourselves for the working worlds of the future and everyday life in the digitally networked world. It is only in this way that we can motivate people and companies to participate in the innovation process. And it is only in this way that we can promote an innovative spirit in Germany. Let us tackle new challenges together with creativity, agility, courage and self-confidence!

Education, research and innovation are of central importance for safeguarding our future. They form the basis for economic, social and technological progress. Through research and innovation, we want to transform our lifestyles and economy in such a way that competitiveness, the preservation of the natural life-support systems and social equity become compatible. To achieve these goals, we adopted the High-Tech Strategy 2025 in September 2018. This is the strategic framework for our research and innovation policy. The High-Tech Strategy 2025 underpins our goal of stepping up investment in research and development from the current level of approximately 3 per cent of Germany’s gross domestic product per annum to 3.5 per cent by 2025. We want Germany to remain at the cutting edge of innovation worldwide. And to achieve this, we must do more. This is because innovation is becoming more and more dynamic and digital, which creates new challenges. We are facing up to these challenges – and breaking new ground as we go. We want to offer science, businesses and society an open environment in which to test new ways of acquiring, disseminating and exchanging knowledge, and we must engage new partners. Strategically opening up science, research and innovation is a response to the growing innovative drive. We have already done a great deal to prepare Germany well for the future. Last year, we launched a range of research and innovation policy measures within the High-Tech Strategy 2025 and set out important milestones. Interministerial missions such as combating cancer, reducing plastic discharged into the environment, and achieving substantial greenhouse gas neutrality in industry are being developed in collaboration with science, industry and society. Our major goal is to tangibly improve the quality of life of all citizens. It is therefore important to us to involve the people in our country in discussions on the future of research and innovation. After all, we can only further improve and strengthen our research and innovation policy if we all pull together taking account of the diverse perspectives.

Latin America is styled by the 2016 Global Innovation Index as ""a region with untapped innovation potential [but] with important risks to innovation efforts in the near-term"". A crucial element to avoiding the risks, and realising the potential, is the capability and capacity of the innovation system in the countries and region to nurture and support effective innovation policies. Part of the issue is simply understanding the current state of play of the innovation system. For example, what areas of capability are being focused on which innovation challenges? How do parts of the system work together? What skills and authority are they deploying to achieve their goals, and why? For this we need stronger analyses of both the individual institutions which develop and deliver innovation policy, and the ways in which they interact to create an (effective) system for innovation.
