INSITE project is based upon some fundamental assumptions:
The way in which our society is organized has become more and more dependent on innovation, simply intended as the ability to constantly generate new artifacts.
The social, cultural and technological aspects of innovation processes are inextricably linked through a positive feedback dynamic.
This positive feedback dynamic generates inherently unpredictable externalities that can threaten the sustainability of the environment and social organization itself.
The only way society can respond to this is by changing the way in which it monitors, evaluates and engages in the processes through which it transforms its own organization.
