The TRANSFORM project integrates innovative academic research with entrepreneurial experimentation and extensive collaboration among the academic, private and public sectors with the development of hubs in Canada, USA, Sweden, Germany and Australia. Associate Professor Kes McCormick represented the IIIEE at the recent annual general meeting for the TRANSFORM project in Toronto, Canada on 23-25 October. The event gathered researchers and practitioners from SMEs to discuss ambitions and opportunities through the TRANSFORM project.

KNOWLEDGE SYNTHESIS

We study emerging transformative sustainable and resilient practices and business models to design tools and resources that researchers, policy makers and businesses can scale up and replicate in urban spaces and communities.   

INTERACTIVE CAPACITY BUILDING

We develop context-specific capacity-building activities through interactive, co-creative processes to enhance and support SMEs experiential learning on transformative entrepreneurship. 

SUSTAINABILITY EXPERIMENTS

We work with SMEs to design, test and explore transformational sustainability experiments. Our research Hubs work to co-produce locally meaningful sustainability and resilience experiments.

POLICY ANALYSIS

We develop policy guidance for governments to link innovation and sustainability strategies that support SMEs as key actors in urban sustainability transformations.
