Technological, institutional and social innovation promotes economic development and international competitiveness, and can do much to reduce environmental burdens. Thus, innovation is an essential factor in the realisation of the principles of sustainable development.
The series ‘Sustainability and Innovation’ aims to positively contribute to a better understanding of the connection between innovation and sustainability. It is interdisciplinary in coverage, concentrating primarily on the links between environmental and innovation research. Individual titles in the series focus on topical issues and cover both theoretical and empirical aspects: concepts of major practical relevance are also discussed. The series is addressed to researchers and policy makers, as well as to specialists and leaders in business and industry.
