Nation-wide development of sustainable production patterns: The case of 16 years of sustainability in Dutch residential house building
This paper integrates the interorganisational innovation process and national innovation system-approach into a new model. A case study research project that covers a 16-year period of sustainable innovations in the Dutch residential building industry applies the model. The research outcomes indicate that interorganisational sustainable innovation processes contribute to the development of a national system of sustainable innovation. Additionally, a national sustainable innovation system facilitates, structures, and stimulates the development of interorganisational sustainable innovation processes.
