What’s the Innovation in Politics Institute?
The Innovation in Politics Institute is an international, non-governmental organisation that identifies, develops and implements innovation in politics in order to strengthen democracy in Europe and beyond. With a Europe-wide network of offices and partner organisations in 21 European countries (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom), and together with political leaders at all levels, the institute is building tomorrow’s politics today.
The Institute develops projects and programmes for politicians and political institutions to make democratic politics more successful, such as the Innovation in Politics Awards, Act Now and the European Capital of Democracy. The Institute provides these programmes to politicians, institutions, civil society and citizens, to create impact for the primary mission – to improve democratic politics. As of today, the Institute has established a community of more than 5,000 politicians throughout Europe, who participate in our programmes and provide their know-how and experience to
their peers. In all our activities, we apply our unique method: identify best practice, develop core insights and localise them, and implement innovative political work for specific tasks.
