Collection description

The world is living fast transformation processes connecting new actors and creating new networks worldwide to find solutions and face the upcoming challenges related to sustainable pathways. Most of the transformation processes are drive-by innovation. However, not all the innovations (e.g. social, technological) are generated in the same way. The innovation depends on the actors involved in these new networks. These networks are organized and perform differently according to different factors (e.g. location, policies...). Studies focus on innovation have usually undertaken in urban areas in management fields. Instead, studies of innovation in rural areas has been focused mostly on technological changes, and little is known about the people involved. Hence, there is the need to understand how the different realities and dynamics in rural areas affect the transformation processes from the actors' position and perspective. Accordingly, this research aims to understand how the transformation towards more sustainable pathways is emerging in rural areas, using an actor-centered approach.
