Abstract

New mindsets and innovative thinking (Moon. 2013, 2014) are needed to deliver on everything from good health and well-being to affordable and clean energy. This paper reviews the latest trends to tackling pressing social and environmental problems by examining a sample of 100 innovative projects across the globe. The data set of 100 projects allows for evaluation by both quantitative and qualitative methods. Thus the projects are evaluated on their innovation contribution but also on their scalability going forward. Implications for the resources needed to ensure such projects continue to be developed across the globe are discussed; and the green skills needed to ensure their success. The projects cover a range of applications including Buildings, Food, Energy, Transportation but also Resource and Education sectors. The Circular Economy concept is used to identify commonalities between the projects. And key challenges in the development and deployment of the solutions are highlighted. The key research question is: what strategic policy support is needed within HEIs to ensure the development of the necessary multi collaborative and cross disciplinary mind-sets and skills that such projects require.
