Mariana’s work looks at the feedback between finance and innovation: how different firms need different types of finance and how different types of finance affect the type of innovation the firms do. She demonstrates the need for patient long-term committed finance to nurture complex innovation process. Her key concern is how to re-balance the risk-reward relationship, so we don’t only socialise the risks but also the rewards. This, she argues, will improve the innovation eco-system. She advises the UK government and the EC on innovation-led growth.

Mariana Mazzucato regularly gives talks to public and private sector organisations around the world on the economics of growth and innovation.
