Systemic eco-innovation for urban sustainable development?

Jonas Bylund reflects on the core notion of systemic eco-innovation. More specifically about its usability for the JPI Urban Europe.

Notion: “Urban innovation ecosystems are better described by complexity and network dynamics rather than linear systems in causal chains (even if two-dimensionally depicted as contextual clouds and swarms), since innovation in practice rarely develops like a conveyor belt in a Ford factory.”
