The national innovation is built around ten top sectors. In the social and political debate, the question of how more general social themes such as sustainability and social innovation relate to this policy.
The goal of this project is to contribute to the social and policy discussion on top sectors.
The result is a report that describes how sector plans top score on the dimensions of sustainability and environmental quality, with resulting recommendations for policy. Here, three groups plan to distinguish:
• all plans that have incorporated sustainability
• plans that see sustainability as an application field
• plans that pay little attention to sustainability.
No plan has provided concrete description how the monitors or the sustainability claims actually being achieved.
