Too many policy failures are fundamentally failures of knowledge. This has become particularly apparent during the recent financial and economic crisis, which is questioning the validity of mainstream scholarly paradigms. We propose to pursue a multidisciplinary approach and to establish new institutional settings which remove or reduce obstacles impeding efficient knowledge creation. We provided suggestions on: (1) how to modernize and improve the academic publication system, and (2) how to support scientific coordination, communication, and co-creation in large-scale multidisciplinary projects. Both constitute important elements of what we envision to be a novel ICT infrastructure called an "Innovation Accelerator" or a "Knowledge Accelerator".
