Summary The Innovation Policy Lab (IPL) is a research hub within the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy whose mission is to study, teach, and apply novel methods and disciplines to the study of innovation and its impact on growth and society. Bringing together teams of researchers from multiple schools and departments at the University of Toronto, as well as from other institutions in countries across the globe, the IPL focuses on core questions in a number of areas including innovation and growth, innovation and inequality, globalization and innovation, social innovation, new technologies and their impact on society, innovation in traditional industries, and arts and innovation. Since our aim is not only to advance basic research but also to effect change, we pay particular attention to the role of public policy in nurturing innovation, while at the same time enhancing its positive impacts on society and limiting its negative consequences.
