This handbook introduces actionable knowledge on developing a Transformative Theory of Change by applying a portfolio approach to address a systems innovation perspective for projects and programmes. Tools, methods and lessons learned are based on working hand in hand with EIT Climate-KIC projects around a portfolio of knowledge services for sustainable systems transformation.
The step-by-step methodology supports practitioners to design, implement and evaluate projects aimed at achieving transformative system change by combining the Theory of Change methodology with the Multi-Level Perspective (MLP). It can be used to facilitate a co-creation process among societal stakeholders invested in sustainability, connecting innovation with societal challenges through the effective delivery of knowledge service.
The handbook has been developed through the collaboration between the Transformative Innovation Policy Consortium (TIPC) and the University Centre for Global Challenges, with support from EIT Climate-KIC as part of the MOTION project, Ingenio-UPV and the Austrian Institute of Technology.
