About this book

This volume gathers papers from experts on sustainable development and those on innovation and innovation policy, with the aim of bridging the gap between these two communities and developing mutual understanding. It shows the still very open character of the discussion about the links between innovation and sustainable development and also displays the gaps, deficiencies and necessities for completion not only in scientific analysis but also in political actions. Yet it makes clear how the concept of sustainable development can serve as a guiding principle for future innovation and that it also offers business opportunities.
