Assessing impacts

Evaluating effects of multi-actor interactive innovation

The main  challenge of assessing impacts  is to co-design practice ready tools that draw from the strengths of existing classical approaches and data sources while also co-creating new tools that are capable of responding to the relationships and learning occurring in interactive innovation.

This implies taking  a multi-actor approach to co-innovating state of the art evaluation & impact assessment tools. Working with real life cases of interactive innovation, we are co-designing tools capable of evaluating/assessing core functions, such as:

  • network interactions;
  • reflexivity;
  • participatory knowledge exchange.

Prototyped evaluation/impact assessment ideas will be produced by WP5 and will be part of  the toolbox as a dissemination and exploitation process.
