Dep – Our mission
As we investigate, develop and demonstrate solutions for better urban futures, we will remain committed to our core values.
Inclusive Innovation: We enhance participation and empowerment of local communities to address context-specific problems in new and creative ways, driving shared benefits and opportunities for people, businesses and communities in the surrounding local areas and marginalised groups in east London.
Collaboration and Partnership: Innovation shouldn’t happen behind closed doors. We facilitate and coordinate connections across communities, sectors and industries; co-creating value, sharing learnings and applying open innovation to maximise impact.
Local and Global Impact: We address issues from our immediate locality to challenges of a global nature, working with a diverse range of innovators and stakeholders to demonstrate the potential for impact at scale.
