Maximizing the impact of standards and regulation to drive transformative innovation: a new approach

A ground-breaking exploration into how standards and regulations can work together to bring about the transformative innovation needed to accelerate the transition to net zero. 
The research proposes a conceptual framework of standardization and regulation promoting transformative innovation, one which is the first of its kind.
The framework is based on a targeted literature review, interviews with key stakeholders (across academia, SDOs, NGOs, industry, national governments, and other international institutions), and case studies of other standards and standards development processes identified to inform the discussion. Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI
