INNOVATION ENGINE FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT | Caltech/Sustainability | COUNTY GOAL: OurCountyLA plan.
The INNOVATION ENGINE is a knowledge management and impact assessment system tailored for sustainability, and is first of its kind targeting municipal or regional implementation.
The system identifies strategic needs and opportunities; facilitates collaboration between County and municipal agencies, NGOs, and others focused on developing or implementing solutions; and predicts the impact of action or inaction.
The prototype system is designed for Southland sustainability professionals, mapping the vision of the OurCounty Los Angeles sustainability plan to the agencies involved with the implementation, the specific actions to be carried out, and the potential impacts of those actions across many factors. The system offers real-time analytics equipped with advanced modeling capabilities.
