Sustainability and user-driven innovation

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research programme will be based on the development and the analysis of case studies related to sustainability and user-driven innovation. In particular the focus will be on innovation led by users that contribute to the development of a more sustainable society. The systematic comparison and analytical induction of the case studies aims towards: a better understanding of the types of user sustainability inventions; the characteristics and capabilities of inventive users; the number and length of user sustainability innovation phases; the types and financial sources of user sustainability enterprises; the role of communities in the process of user sustainability invention and introduction; and the influence of public policy.
