Complementing and challenging the national cleantech innovation system in Finland

04 August 2017, Environmental Technologies, SYKE

A study by SYKE's researchers develops an approach of analysing the strengths and weaknesses of Technological Innovation Systems (TIS) in a multi-scale context.

Solar energy in the municipality of Ii.

The empirical focus is on the technological innovation system of the Finnish cleantech sector and the role of the intermediary network of low-carbon municipalities (the HINKU network) in complementing and challenging it. The study also answers the call for more place-based analyses on technological innovations by providing a case study in the municipality of Ii – one of the forerunner municipalities of low-carbon transition. Based on the analysis, recognising of intermediary organisations could be an effective way of covering some of the weaknesses and integrating local contexts of implementation in the national innovation system.

An intermediary approach to technological innovation systems (TIS) - The case of the cleantech sector in Finland  by Jani Lukkarinen et al. is published in the journal Environmental Innovation and Societal Transitions.
