2.4 Four Layer Model of Institutions
In the next web lecture, Rolf Künneke will first explain the following definition of institutions:‘Institutions are systems of established and embedded social rules that structure social interactions’ as introduced by Geoffrey M. Hodgson.
Using offshore wind energy as a running example, we will have a closer look at the institutional context in which a technology is being developed and implemented. For this institutional context, he will distinguish and explain the four layers indicated in the next figure. Responsible Innovation requires an adaptation in all levels of this institutional framework to be successful.
In the second web lecture, we will discuss in more detail the technical implications of offshore wind energy and the underlying values.
