2014-2017 | CASI: 'Public Participation in Developing a Common Framework for Assessment and Management of Sustainable Innovation'
The project 'Public Participation in Developing a Common Framework for Assessment and Management of Sustainable Innovation' (CASI) is proposed as a response to one of the Grand Challenges set out in the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union, namely 'Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials'.
It represents an EU-wide cross-sectoral partnership on innovation-related challenges and considers not only the impacts of social and technological innovation, but also the types of actors involved and their inherent interests. It thus effectively integrates the perspectives of civil society, SMEs, industry, policy stakeholders, and leading academics. This collaboration investigates the scope of sustainable innovation as a societal phenomenon and enables the elaboration of an assessment framework of sustainable innovation practices, whose application can be successfully integrated into public policy developments.
Key products to look forward to
- Common Framework for the Assessment and Management of Sustainable Innovation
will be based on all of the knowledge accumulated through CASI’s implementation, and will reflect expertise from various disciplines, results of academic research, and lessons from practitioners’ experiences.
- Sustainable Innovation web portal
since the beginning of May 2014 a new web portal has been aggregating in a user-accessible form all knowledge produced within CASI. The portal is accessible at www.casi2020.eu.
- A database of case studies on sustainable innovationCASI will build a database of EU-wide sustainable innovation cases representing identified innovation practices, which have been analysed through the application of CFAMSI.
- Policy briefs
CASI will regularly publish short policy oriented briefs, reporting on it progress and focusing on sustainable innovation through policy lenses. Those briefs will be shared with EU policy communities, as well as with national policy stakeholders, and each will foster debate on particular perspectives of sustainability and innovation, with an emphasis on necessary policy developments, short policy assessments, and possible ideas for necessary measures to be taken in response to impending sustainability challenges.
