In 2015, I shared thoughts on how to boost innovation in Europe with the EU's Commission on Science, Research and Development. What I didn’t know at the time was that the Medici Effect and intersectional innovation had already been incorporated as key features of the the Dublin Declaration, a framework for creating and growing the EU’s Innovation Ecosystem. Since then, its impact continues to spread in this region. For instance, the Swedish government created Research Institutes of Sweden (RiSE) by bringing together the country's leading research institutes under one umbrella to unleash the Medici Effect.
