Innovation in process of policy design by reflexive governance and action research. The case of renewable energy policy in Pobla de Vallbona
The presentation aims to analyse the interaction experience of a multidisciplinary team in the formulation process of the renewable energy local normative. A set of different elements on the formulation process and the content of the normative will be analysed by exploring the concept of reflexive governance. For doing so, focus will be put in the search of agreement and consensus by considering different interpretation of innovation polices as public procurement for R&D and green procurement as well as more general concepts as governance, participation and decision making mechanisms. Finally key issues of action research approach will be described in term of the the role of local environments on the generation, exchange and knowledge transfer as key drivers for the design and implementation of environmental regulation.
The presentation is based in the participation of the authors in the project Mediterranean renewables energy ENERMED. The project seeks to bring coherence to Mediterranean regional policies on renewable energy for innovation and competitiveness. Our skills will contribute to understanding.
