EuroLics Workshop

May 31, 30 researchers were gathered at Department of Business and Management, AAU, to discuss two important research themes: Transformative innovation systems and Industry 4.0.

Cristina Chaminade (Lund University), Jan Fagerberg (Oslo University) and Jakob Edler (Manchester University) gave presentations at the morning session on how various policy means can spur (or hinder) a transformation of European Innovation Systems towards a more sustainable path “transformative innovation systems”, and Jesper Lindgaard Christensen (IKE-Group, AAU) opened the succeeding discussion.

About EuroLics

EuroLics was established in 2014 and is the latest chapter of the Globelics Network. The EuroLics network brings together researchers who link innovation and competence building to inclusive and sustainable development. A basic assumption behind the formation of the EuroLics network is that innovation systems perspectives contribute to the design and implementation of more inclusive and sustainable development policies and strategies within and outside Europe.
