Innovation learning labs

There are now a range of innovation learning labs within universities. Examples include the Innovation and Action Lab based in Brussels, developed by i-propeller and including the London School of Economics, Harvard Business School, IESE Business School in Barcelona and Madrid, SITE at the Stockholm School of Economics and the Catholic University of Leuven. There is also the Poverty Action Lab at MIT which tests out alternative interventions to reduce poverty in the developing world. These face the challenge involved in any kind of social policy – how many pilots in how many different types of society generate firm knowledge about what will work in the future.
