Abstract

Transitions or system innovations towards sustainability has become urgent and fundamental in order to tackle the dynamic, complex factors fuelling the global crisis of our days. Because their potential for system innovation change, sustainability transitions are a valid research field to stimulate both technological and organizational changes toward sustainability systems. In the framework of ClimateKIC European Programme, this paper has analyzed practical and inspiring cases of transition experiments in the university domain. Actually, university plays a key role of learning organization where it is possible to develop innovations and to reach a successful transformation in place of sustainability. The result is the creation of living laboratory of sustainability where to experiment and to co-create sustainability processes and solutions.
