T3s role as icebreaker, pathfinder, and prototyper: Essential to the entrepreneurial, pioneering spirit needed to spearhead innovation culture in Europe.
Path-finding is the process of discovering and exploring new ways forward. Innovation is often unknown territory, and explorers and guides are needed to move people, projects and organizations in useful directions towards quality of life improvements that are attractive, practical, and scalable. The complex world knows many difficult places and dead-ends, and pathfinders seeking new ways to stimulate societal innovation impact make the journey easier.
Icebreaking means opening new space for energizing society and enhancing regional innovation. It is the process of clearing a space for practical action. When the way forward seems blocked there is a need for breaking through barriers to create new possibilities for thinking and acting. In stuck situations, when people see more difficulties than opportunities, icebreaking creates space for experimenting, new thinking, and moving forward.
Prototyping is the process of co-creating promising solutions and testing them in practice. It is an iterative process of learning-by-doing, where demonstrations of work-in-progress lead to deeper insight into what really works and what people really need. It is essential to accept working hands-on with new ideas, sometimes failing our way forward and always focusing on continuous improvement. Prototyping is the key to innovation acceleration.
