CASI and the new portal

CASI is an EC-funded project focused on “Public Participation in Developing a Common Framework for Assessment and Management of Sustainable Innovation” proposed in response to one of the Horizon 2020 programme Grand Challenges of “Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials”.

The project’s portal available at was launched in May 2014 and continues developing as the project evolves.

At the moment users can find and benefit from sustainable innovation relevant news, events and documents. Portal’s participants are also invited to contribute with blog posts and mapping of sustainable innovation cases and soon the website will offer online tutorials on the subject of sustainability and innovation. For more information about the project, its activities and products see here.
