The report describes a new framework for understanding missions and their underlying mission innovation systems. It reports three UK case studies applying this new framework to missions (or potential missions) relating to domestic heat pumps, clean hydrogen and neodymium.

The key focus of the report is the development and validation of the framework for understanding missions. To this end, the case studies are intended to explore the value of the framework in different contexts rather than providing a comprehensive review of each of the case study missions.
