The Innovation in Politics Institute is a mission-driven company. We identify, develop and apply innovations in politics – to strengthen democracy in Europe and beyond.

We have offices in Vienna and Berlin and representations in Belgium, Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Our mission

Our mission is to recognise and support those political professionals who have the courage to break new ground, are creative and achieve better results – across party lines and across borders – to make democratic politics more successful.

What we do

We develop projects and programmes for politicians, institutions, civil society and citizens to make democratic politics more successful. As of today, we have 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.

  • The Innovation in Politics Award: We recognise and support those politicians who have the courage to break new ground, who are creative and achieve real results. We bring their innovative work to the fore, so that it may serve as a source of inspiration.
  • European Capital of Democracy: We are building a stronger Europe with resilient democracies. Starting in autumn 2021, every year a different city will be designated the European Capital of Democracy. It will serve as the stage and floor for all of us who engage to innovate and strengthen democracy.
  • ACT NOW: Within the framework of ACT NOW, we accompany citizens and politicians from Europe and the MENAT region in developing projects to strengthen social cohesion, citizen engagement and youth empowerment in regions, cities and villages.
  • Polis Project: Building on expertise gained in successful political work from all over Europe, we bring together international project-owners, politicians, experts and citizens to co-create new policies in creative and unique formats.
