Innovation has been proven to be a central driver of economic growth and development. Similarly, the transition to more sustainable patterns of production and consumption is dependent on far reaching processes of innovation and technological change.
This course will provide an introduction to key theoretical approaches, which link innovation to the theory and practice of sustainable development. On this basis, it will address emerging paradigms for sustainable innovation policy and management and other current topics in the business practice of sustainable innovation, such as the sharing economy, frugal innovation, social entrepreneurship, needs-driven innovation, etc.
