For each cluster of social innovation a model of social innovation will be sketched, providing a general description of the different phases characterizing the adoption of each social innovation, the role of the different actors in each phase and the role of different types of incentives characterising it.

Theoretical framework for definition of locally-embedded future policy scenarios

This deliverable integrates the different outputs of the SMARTEES empirical research (e.g. psychological factors, which influence energy collective behaviour) with contextual conditions, which operate as drivers and barriers for a combination of low carbon policies for the case study clusters. The aim is to contribute to scenario building work by providing plausible and robust knowledge – grounded on empirical data – that help communities tackle energy transitions.

Report about profiles of social innovation “in action” for each cluster

This deliverable will contain an institutional, thematic, and methodological introduction; five parts devoted the specific clusters with their case-studies; a final part devoted to comparisons and conclusions

SMARTEES policy Sandbox IT tool and workshop concept

This deliverable is a software tool to run policy analyses. Two versions of the tool will be programmed: 1) a light version as a demonstration of the SMARTEES concept open to anyone visiting the SMARTEES website, 2) a pro version of the SMARTEES tool re-stricted to use in a workshop context. The light version will allow users to manipulate central parameters in policy scenarios within a predefined framework informed by WP5. This version gives a taste of the possibilities that lie in the SMARTEES methodology, the full potential and flexibility, however, cannot be unlocked without supplementing the web-tool with substantial input and guidance. Therefore, the pro version of the SMARTEES tool will be restricted to use in a workshop context.

This deliverable is a working ABM simulation environment for the five social innovation cases. The deliverable will be the program code for the models implemented in a software enviroment.
