Prospering without growth: Science, Technology and Innovation in a post-growth era

Project description

Examining the role of innovation in a post-growth era

The narrative of infinite economic growth has overlong conditioned the role of innovation. This context of technological determinism and productivism overshadows the socially constructed character of technological development, its political function and its potential to enable both fair societies and technological dystopias. The EU-funded PROSPERA project will challenge the paradigm of endless growth drawing its arguments from the hypothesis that untangling innovation from growth is crucial to imagining a post-growth era. PROSPERA will explore new narratives for innovation that would accordingly change and increase the scope of the innovation concept itself in cultural and institutional transformation, and subsequently in social life and social order.
