|Venture||Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation|
Purpose and goal
The overall aim of the project is to contribute to increased use of ecological stormwater management in urban areas to meet the increase of rainfall of high intensity that comes with ongoing climate change. In the A project this has meant that in-depth studies and improved strategies for future work in the B-phase could be worked out. More actors have been associated to the project and the need for strategic interventions to increase the use has been clarified based on, among other things, a deepened market analysis.
Results and expected effects
The results in the A-project shows that the resource issue in many cases is essential if the new solutions on how to manage stormwater ecologically will be used. Resources in terms of knowledge, time and money are essential elements that can be difficult to create. In order to achieve effects in the future project we have prioritized making existing knowledge available and increase the number of good application example through testbeds and new open storm water facilities.
Approach and implementation
The analyzes of market conditions in the A phase has emphasized the importance of developing models and working with clear responsibilities and financial assessment. Cross-border cooperation is essential for success, and this analysis has led to a complex project structure in the B-phase, which can serve as examples of how the revised working arrangements can help to increase the rate of change in the introduction of ecological stormwater management in cooperation between the green and blue actors.
