Sustainable innovation (SI) is a wide and multifaceted concept, the complex nature and definition of which is continuous and the subject of many questions and debates. This is probably the main reason why developing a framework for the assessment and management of SI is simultaneously a pioneering and a challenging endeavour.

This report introduces the CASI Framework (CASI-F), which aims to assist in the assessment and management of SI by facilitating the identification of SI critical issues and inducing policy-oriented responses to address these issues.

The report targets two different objectives. The first is to provide a critical perspective on the use of CASI-F. The second is to extract and present policy messages obtained through the varied mobilisation and mutual learning activities developed within the CASI project to conceive the framework. The framework has been developed and conceptually informed by three key sources of knowledge (or tracks), namely existing SI initiatives (as described in Chapter 4), current SI policy developments (Chapter 5) and the visions and aspirations of citizens (Chapter 6). The importance of engaging and mobilising relevant actors across these tracks is analysed and discussed in the remaining chapters. The perspectives of four key stakeholders, corresponding to government, businesses, civil society and research/education sectors, have been considered in the development and application of CASI-F.
