By mandate, governments must pass sustainable policies that benefit the entire community. Empirical evidence shows that good practice is the result of research processes that seek to provide or adapt local solutions to universal problems, which others can use as a guide and further modify to better meet their needs. The ability to collect and analyse heterogeneous information, apply proven and logical methodologies, and cut across disciplinary borders is key.
Participation in headline projects throughout Europe has given ISINNOVA an advantageous observation point as well as a comprehensive overview of advances in transport, mobility, energy and the environment. This broad perspective and knowledge allows us to provide comparisons and benchmarking with similar initiatives in different countries, adding considerable value to policy making and deployment.
Working with ISINNOVA means having access to and cooperating with a wide network of international contacts that have partnered with us over the years, including governments, ministries, agencies, universities, and public and private research and consulting organisations. Appropriate collaborative groups can be formed to best respond to the needs at hand.
Sustainable development is a challenge for both post-industrial economies and economies that are witnessing a recent and unprecedented rate of growth. The latter have the opportunity to integrate development with sustainability by capitalising on the vast experience accrued in Europe. For countries beyond Europe with a specific interest in sustainable and innovative solutions, ISINNOVA can serve as an effective conduit to this valuable body of knowledge.
