This project aims to identify practical cases which allow innovation and sustainability indicators to be defined and better understood. It is based on initiatives in the regions of Lisbon, Vale de Tejo and Alentejo and complements the activities carried out by MIES. The preliminary results of this project were presented at the Gulbenkian Foundation in November 2015 along with a documentary on the case-studies identified. A public discussion of the results is scheduled to take place in March 2016.

It is conducted by the New University of Lisbon’s Sociology Studies Centre (CESNOVA) and SIM – the Climate Change Research Group based at the University of Lisbon’s Science Faculty.
