Abstract [en]

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present the web-based environmental innovation processes in

the waste-to-energy field, conducted within the Remowe project in Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Poland and Lithuania. The goal of this paper is to discuss lessons learnt from the experiences of these innovation processes in practice and to report experiences from a pilot projects where RPM Screening  was employed to enhance the  innovation work for waste-to-energy in the Remowe project.

Methods

The paper is based on a foresight methodology RPM Screening which consists of distributed

generation, mutual  commenting,  iterative  revision,  multi-criteria  evaluation  and  portfolio analysis of innovation ideas. The portfolio analysis builds on the Robust Portfolio Modelling. Results

The results show that the web platform was a convenient   and user-friendly tool for both

generation and evaluation of innovation ideas within all of five regions. However, there are some problems to get higher participatory, especially in the case of evaluation of ideas.                All the innovation processes, as a part of a Remowe project, consists of the same main steps. Regional differences in implementation of these steps can be identiefied, such as differences in the preparation of innovation process, in simulation of innovation generation and in  the design of the workshop.

Main conclusions

The paper provides the description and comparison of the regional innovation processes

conducted  in  different  countries.  The  web  platform  and  RPM  Screening  used  in  these innovation processes were suitable tools.  Projects such Remowe, with the aim of innovation generation should also include further work on implementation of selected innovations.
