This presentation was given by one of CSO’s board members, Prof. Rene Jorna, at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences, in December 2004. Its full title is ‘The Concept of Sustainability and Sustainable Innovation: An attempt to reconceptualize.’
This is a hugely important paper co-written by one of CSO’s board members, Prof. Rene Jorna of the University of Groningen, and his co-authors, Niels Faber and Jo Van Engelen.
