Innovation-environment interactions

Innovative technologies generally have a range of complex interactions with the natural environment, both positive and negative, as perceived by different societal actors. They can provide more environmentally sustainable systems and improve the quality of life. Achieving the desired benefits while minimising the negative aspects requires an integrated and inclusive analytical approach. Innogen conducts in-depth, rigorous research into these innovation-environment interactions to support the delivery of optimal environmental outcomes from the introduction of innovative technologies.

The role of social sciences in innovation

18 November 2019

As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, the Innogen Institute brought together social science researchers and scientists from the Roslin Institute and the Centre for Synthetic and Systems Biology (SynthSys) at the University of Edinburgh for a free public event exploring the opportunities arising from the latest genetic technologies and the regulatory issues they are facing.
