Syfte och mål

This project aims to propose a set of principles and generic procedures to support the development of formative evaluation, based on Transformative Innovation Policy elements, applicable to the Challenge Driven Initiative (CDI) programme . The purpose of this being to enable a more concrete understanding of what formative evaluation would imply in practice at Vinnova.

Förväntade effekter och resultat

1. Background information and workshop preparation: The research team will review existing project documentation, and documentation on the structure, organization and results of the CDI programme and a specific project. 2. A one-day workshop (about 6 hours) with a small group of Vinnova officials to take place in Stockholm. 3. Drawing mainly on the workshop outcomes, we will write up a report summarizing the workshop presentations, discussions and conclusions reached.

Planerat upplägg och genomförande

We will co-develop the approach with Vinnova officials. We will use a past intervention, the “Forest methanol” project (Skogsmetanol), as a heuristic tool to illustrate what elements of the project management and development would have been conducted differently under different formative evaluation approaches. These will be discussed at a workshop to take place in Stockholm in late January 2019, the results of which will be summarized in a workshop report.
