Launch of the learning program

Launch of the learning program "#01/ Promoting innovation for sustainability transitions in the MED: an introduction"

As professionals, policy makers and citizens we are being asked to direct our efforts to address environmental and social challenges. We are all fully aware of how urgent and important the situation, yet we feel still unable to act appropriately. 

This course addresses these questions from the perspective of policy practitioners and with a focus on the Mediterranean. It presents conceptual tools and examples that facilitate public decision making in the current conditions characterised by high complexity and high uncertainty. 

The course answers questions such as:

  • What are sustainability transitions and what is the role of innovation policy within them?
  • How can we frame them conceptually in a way that helps policy making?
  • How can we drive sustainability transitions in the Mediterranean? 
  • What does it all mean for regional policies? And in particular for Smart Specialisation Strategies?

We are moving in high uncertainty and high complexity, what we need are ideas, heuristics and the space to experiment. With this course, you will better equipped to move in this space and manage policy processes.  

The courses will start on February 28, 2022
