Management of integrative innovation processes: new institutional and regional coordination forms for sustainable land management

The research group „ Management of integrative innovation processes: new institutional and regional coordination forms for sustainable land management“, led by Dr. Bettina König, investigates new institutional and regional coordination forms for sustainable land management.

Developing relevant knowledge for managing complex innovation processes requires a transdisciplinary approach to bridge the gap between science and practice. By reference to two local examples, the research group "Management of integrative innovation processes" investigates new institutional and regional coordination forms for sustainable land management in order to develop sustainable solutions for global challenges.

The management of complex innovation processes for sustainable land management needs to be addressed as a research topic also in a specific spacial or sectoral context; to develop sustainable solutions for global challenges. Research results on this topic are especially relevant for actors with coordinating functions in value chains and regional contexts, such as regional development. One example for this innovation management challenge can be found in the biosphere reserve Spreewald, where actors need to develop new sustainable land use business models for the maintenance of fen peatlands, relevant for climate change and biodiversity.  A second example are organic farming actors who need to handle more complex innovation processes in order to develop locally adapted and globally relevant holistic solutions for challenges such as agricultural-biodiversity loss in chicken production and disconnected relationship between farmers and producers through new farming business models. Developing relevant knowledge for managing complex innovation processes requires a transdisciplinary approach to bridge the gap between science and practice.
