Peer Innovation - Contributions to Innovation and Sustainability
The first working report highlights the collaboration of private individuals in peer communities. Peer innovation is defined as a specific form of innovation in the household sector, characterized by openness, self-motivation and collaboration of private individuals. This is the basis of the transformative potential of this innovation mode, which the working report describes. To this end, it takes stock of empirical studies on the frequency and relevance of innovation in the household sector and shows why the development of suitable methods for measuring peer innovation is urgently needed.
