Focus

The fifth work package analyses the upscaling of innovations as a sub-process in the overall diffusion and adoption of innovations. Adoption research has primarily focused on the first 'early adoption' stage of the diffusion process, with hardly any attention being paid to the question of how to reach 'late adopters'. This relates to the upscaling process of innovation diffusion. What are relevant factors and facilitating instruments that play a role in scaling up this process? 

In the previous topics, we have not explicitly addressed the role of ICT. However, technology plays an increasing role in innovation processes in the public sector. Given this dominant role of ICT, it is relevant to focus on the scaling up process of ICT-driven innovations. Moreover, ICT-driven innovations very often require specific professional knowledge and specific investments, which may frustrate the upscaling process. Further, it also seems to depend on the general ICT infrastructure that is present in a specific policy sector or even country. Their ICT readiness may influence the adoption and upscaling process. Work Package 5, 'Upscaling ICT-driven social innovations', focuses on these questions.
