Successful meeting of ENGAGE and SINA project partners

Both projects ENGAGE and SINA deal with the potential of social innovations for sustainable transformations. Now, members of both teams met to discuss social innovations in the energy transition.

In more general terms, Social Innovations describe ideas which address social needs by improved means. In order to attain an inclusive and just energy transition, we must especially consider the interplay between ecological, economical and social aspects.

The research project SINA (Social Innovations for Sustainability) deals with the potential of social innovations for sustainable transformations and formulates political recommendations for its practical implementation.

Similar to SINA, the project ENGAGE also examines the potential of social innovations – but with a focus on energy transition: By strengthening civil participation, the project aims at increasing social acceptance for the energy transition.

Last week, members of both teams met to discuss their research projects. The participants shared their knowledge, experiences and created new impulses for future research. Further meetings are planned.
