Governance Regime Factors Conducive to Innovation Uptake in Urban Water Management
Deliverable 12.1, DESSIN
Rouillard, Josselin et.al. 2015: Governance Regime Factors Conducive to Innovation Uptake in Urban Water Management. Deliverable 12.1, DESSIN, European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Grant Agreement No. 619039.
This Deliverable reports the results of the assessment of governance factors conducive to innovation uptake carried within the context of the FP7 DESSIN project. The research is based on the analysis of innovation uptake in the three DESSIN mature case-study sites (i.e. Aarhus, Emscher, Ebro) which had welcomed some successful transformation in urban water management. A number of recommendations are presented in the conclusion to inspire future "entrepreneurs" in promoting innovation uptake in urban water management. The report is available for download.
