University of Utrecht is one of the partners of Eurbanlab, and collecting and assessing Urban Innovations. Next to that, the University is developing and testing the benchmark assessment tool.
The Copernicus Institute (part of the University of Utrecht) investigates and develops processes and opportunities for innovative change towards sustainability. The research group Environmental Governance is involved in the Eurbanlab project. This research group seeks to make a relevant and significant contribution to the scholarly and political debate by formulating recommendations about interventions that have the potential to make governance outcomes more congruent with sustainability goals. Special attention is given to institutional, legal, financial and social conditions that may foster sustainable development. The research is based on both empirical-analytical approaches (retrospective and explanatory oriented) and normative approaches (prescriptive and design orientated).
