Innovation processes are often focused on technology and market readiness. However, how easy is it for people to productively appropriate the innovation into their lives? How good is it for them and for society as a whole? Does it support social justice? What are unintended consequences and how can you anticipate and address them?
SoRA is a reflexive assessment that helps you to reflect on how socially responsive your green mobility innovation is against societal readiness indicators and supports the improvement potential of your innovation.
SoRA is a reflexive assessment framework created for innovators, researchers, local authorities and community action workers to recognise their innovation's societal readiness and their responsiveness to strengthen the same.
When can SoRA be useful?
Steps to use SoRA?
Considering how ready your innovation is for society from an early stage makes for a more innovative, resilient and robust initiative, helping to develop ideas and ground the enthusiasm of the development group and ensure that the results optimise benefits and minimise negative impacts.
