Lisa Scordato

I am senior adviser at the Nordic Institute for Studies in Innovation, Research and Education (NIFU) in Oslo where we have developed an interdisciplinary research group within innovation studies on sustainability transitions. A political scientist by training, I have a research interest in national and international policy development and policy measures addressing societal challenges and issues related to the emergence of transformative and responsible innovation policies.

Over the past five years, I have become increasingly interested in the emerging scholarly discussions on transformative innovation policy which go far beyond narrow science and technology policy. In AFINO’s work package seven, I will use UNESCOs methodology for future literacy laboratories. This implies building learning arenas where people from the industry, academia, NGOs, public sector institutions and other relevant citizens and stakeholders can make use of the future in order to explore possible negative and positive consequences of innovation and current socio-technological shifts.
