To address this key question, our research focusses on understanding, facilitating, sustaining and upscaling these process, through reflexive monitoring and evaluation.
Through reflection and learning we also combine the analysis of challenges and innovations with methodologies for knowledge integration and transformation. This brings us to our additional research focus: Training and empowering stakeholders, professionals and students to facilitate and participate in inclusive multi-stakeholder innovation processes.
Levels of analyses
Realising effective innovations through inclusive multi-stakeholder innovation processes typically entails interventions at multiple levels, as an activity at one level strongly influences activities at other levels as well. Therefore, our research foci are studied at all levels and in interaction:
- Micro: actors and projects
- Meso: organisations and networks
- Macro: socio-technical systems
