04: The Cycle of Innovation and its Ecology

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Innovation follows the cycle of “creative destruction” (Schumpeter). Resilience Science and Cultural Theory models show that different stages of the innovation cycle require different “characters”: scientists, entrepreneurs, visionaries, etc. Computational science shows that these “different characters” apply different search strategies to solving problems. Citizen and Community Science as a broker within this ecology of innovation has a special (practical) role.
