Transition partners

To boost innovation and transition towards sustainable development, there is a will to support LINSA in an appropriate manner. In addition to existing support, there is a need for specific competences, which have been carefully identified and described as “transition partnership”. Transition partners can help LINSA to define LINSA objectives, to innovate, to find support from different sources, to build a LINSA governance structure and operation. Transition partnership comes along with several tasks and functions. A transition partner can take up the role as facilitator, participatory researcher, as boundary person, as expert, lecturer or trainer, as intermediary person, or in the context of the European Innovation Partnership as innovation broker.

At the end of the SOLINSA project, a training course for transition partners has been designed and tested. Recommendations have also been formulated for transition partners, referring to training, networking, cross-sectoral activities and a more intensive practice-research collaboration. The approach particularly becomes to be evident in the context of the European Innovation Partnership.
