Innovations capture our imagination, our hopes and our fears. Innovations may spur economic growth and transform societies but are they bringing about the world we want?
Are we directing research and innovation towards desirable goals and a more sustainable future? Are we involving everyone who is affected, and who can contribute towards reaching these goals?
AFINO will establish broad dialogues and shared commitments to ensure that innovation contributes to a more just, inclusive and sustainable Norway. We promote new ways of foreseeing and realizing a better world, and imaginative collaborations among researchers, entrepreneurs, managers, consumers, engaged citizens, and policymakers. We have brought together several Norwegian universities and research centers, and we are working with many partners to build and disseminate new skills and knowledge. Working together, we will stimulate creative ways of thinking that inspire action, and we will promote new practices that make a difference. AFINO aims to be an inspiring model of socially responsible innovation, working with people and organisations that share our vision.
