4 – Biohub development: stakeholder analysis & ‘design propositions’

Contents.

In this research line, we aim to define the ‘design space’ and ‘design propositions’ of the biofuel supply chains and Biohub concepts through identification of the stakeholders’ values, interests, needs and capabilities.

We identify and reach out to relevant stakeholders along the chain, with specific attention to stakeholders at the beginning (biomass producers) and the end of the chain. By implementing methods from Responsible Research and Innovation and Value Sensitive Design, we define the design space and design propositions, which refer to the boundaries within which innovation can be designed. We align these boundaries with the values, interests, needs and capabilities of relevant stakeholders, based on a combination of interviews and surveys in the selected case studies.
