Mtechnology is already honored member of CASI (Common Framework for Assessment and Management of Sustainable Innovation). This case was mapped as a result of direct contact and partnership with the author and is based on cooperation including joint events, exchange of knowledge, contacts and expert materials.
WHAT IS CASI? 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 perspectivesof 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.
