Purpose and goal

The aim is to develop a methodology and toolbox for evaluating how alternative options in business, politics, government and research can contribute to societal value. The goal is to establish a robust, documented and tested approach for strategic assessment of options for creating societal value through Agenda 2030, an international panel for assessments of how different activities can contribute to this and understanding among participants about the Agenda 2030 compass and its application.

Expected results and effects

The project is expected to result in a user-friendly, computer-based and a collaborative methodology and process for group-based assessments of different decision-making options and its impact on Agenda 2030. The results will be used for strategic decision-making within companies, government, research and other societal organisations to evaluate how different investment options, research strategies and policies may affect societal value creation.

Planned approach and implementation

The project builds on a co-creation process with industry, government agencies, academia and civil society. A platform for societal value analysis is set up in Phase 1, including formation of an expert panel, design of computer model and user interfaces, and development of process for group-based assessment of how different activities affect Agenda 2030. Testing and further development is carried out in Phase 2. Phase 3 covers dialogue and communication about results and experiences.
