Ahead of the CASI national stakeholders workshops that would be taking place in 12 European countries in the second half of October, sixteen of CASI country correspondents gathered in Copenhagen (pictures below) at the end of September in order to pre-pilot the CASI Framework (CASI-F) for the assessment and management of sustainable innovation.
The workshop was led by CASI partners: Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI), Applied Research and Communications Fund (ARC Fund) and The University of Manchester (UNIMAN) who ensured a positive and stimulating working environment from the beginning until the end of the meeting.
After the introduction and presentation of the CASI Framework the participants were assigned tasks, the final outcome of which was obtaining valuable feedback directed at improving the usability of the framework.
The framework received very welcoming and constructive opinions from the CASI country correspondents, which helped us further improve the concept in time for the upcoming national stakeholders workshops.
We are now looking forward to hearing stakeholders views from the following stakeholders groups: business, governance, civil society, research and education, and will be back with more news after the workshops.
