POSSIBLE AND PREFERABLE SCENARIOS OF A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
TERRITORIAL DESIGN AND NETWORKING. BLENDED STRATEGIES TO REDESIGN FUTURE CONNECTIONS
strategic design, territorial networking, innovation technologies, circular economy, knowledge
Today, sustainable innovation is meant to evolve from the linear model to the circular one. Attempts are made to offer – starting from a knowledge and training upgrade – a new innovative society (Society 5.0) where companies are part of complex relational systems leading to the creation of new sustainable and interconnected supply chains (territorial networking). In this context, the design develops new project visions based on relational paradigms and represents the bridge between technological innovation and social contexts, since it is able to shape technology by harmonising it with cultural, social, economic and political elements.
