Innovative Governance for Sustainability Innovation

Environmental innovations are increasingly seen as a solution to the dilemma of reaching progress towards sustainability in spite of increasing competition on the world market. However, the fostering of ecologically meaningful innovations poses a complex challenge for governance. This challenge is reflected in recent debates. The workshop will discuss the role of innovationssystems in this connection. The contributors to the workshop will address the new challenges from scientific and policy perspectives, pointing to the importance of institutional arrangements and of co-ordinated strategies.
