Reflections on evaluating Challenge Lab by applying a proposed scheme for Sustainability Transition Experiments
Paper in proceeding, 2016

The Challenge Lab (CLab) is a neutral arena for triple helix stakeholders and an educational platform for master students to addresses complex challenges and system lockins. By the end of its third year, the CLab will have hosted nearly 100 students, producing 23 master thesis projects and 13 course projects. We present an evaluative case using the scheme proposed by Luederitz et al. (2016) for sustainability transition experiments which includes four main questions and a set of indicators for each question. We end with some general reflections on the evaluation method.
