Managing & Assessing Transition Innovation Network
The main purpose of this blog is to publish information about the constitution and the activities of an international network of researchers dedicated to the study of the management and assessment of transition(s) innovations (MATIN).
The MATIN research network aims to gather together multiple disciplines and research institutions which investigate management, assessment and governance of innovations for transition models. By focusing on assessment and coordination of the experimentation and upscale of sustainable innovations, the MATIN network seeks to contribute to the analysis of transition acceleration mechanisms, one of the current priorities for national and European public policies. Gathering European researchers, the network will first aim to act as a multi-stakeholder arena for state-of-the art research on innovation for transition, and second to crystallize dispersed research efforts in order to produce action-oriented knowledge for sustainability transitions.
This blog is therefore a key element in allowing us to communicate on different aspects of the Network’s life and share state-of-the-art knowledge. You will find here a general presentation of MATIN, allowing readers to understand and know the objectives of the Network, its members and partner institutions, current projects, news, etc. Then, you will also find all the information concerning our research seminars: the Transition(S) seminars Series (6 to 9 per year): the program as well as reports and references of the interventions. Finally, we will share here the different publications and news of the MATIN network but also its members’ activities (projects, notes, etc.).
