The CASI project aims at assessing Sustainable Innovations (SI) that respond to Societal Challenge 5 of Horizon 2020, namely ‘Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials’, in order to develop a framework supporting better management of SI initiatives. This FREE online course offers a comprehensive review of sustainable innovation related topics organised around 6 Modules and 12 Units.
Unit 1: CASI-F principles and methodology – A five-step guide to future-proof action plans: Understand the why, what and how of sustainable innovation assessment and management.
Unit 2: CASI-F Tools – Web-based solutions supporting open innovation practices: Use CASI-F tools and optimize your innovation potential through learning by doing.
Unit 3: SI assessment of innovations, systems and issues – A must-have set of criteria for more holistic sustainability appraisals: Learn about 7 types of innovations and new assessment indicators.
Unit 4: SI management actions, dimensions and key aspects – A comprehensive set of decision-support concepts: Discover different types of managerial needs and innovative ways of framing solutions.
