Governance of regional innovations towards sustainability

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference paperAcademicpeer-review


This paper addresses the governance of regional innovations towards sustainability. From the literature it is clear that variety is a major source of innovations: innovations come into being in interplay between a variety of public and private actors who bring with them a large variety of identities, values, realities and practices. In this context, traditional concepts of governance such as planning and control, formalized processes and top–down steering are less appropriate. Yet some stability and structures are needed to create common understandings and mutual trust.
