The case studies presented here are based on the ‘Theoretically Informed Case Studies’ which have been created and published through the INNOSERV platform (Langer et al. 2013). Not only the related documents were analysed but also each involved organisation and project was visited by a team of the INNOSERV consortium; the so collected qualitative information was included in the presentations. The data compiled in 2013 were reprocessed and fundamentally reworked and updated. Moreover, the versions presented here are shorter, more elaborated and limited to information which helps to understand the innovation processes.
