The Impact Measurement and Valuation Lab (IMV-Lab) research project focuses on the impact measurement and valuation potentials of social innovations, in cooperation with the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. We pursue the critical evaluation and practical application of different approaches to impact measurement.
The aim of the project is to develop and apply a comprehensive set of tools for measuring the ecological and social impacts of social innovations. Together with social innovators, we design our approach in a co-creative way and seek to enable them to measure their own impact.
Our project team consists of Prof. Dr. Laura Marie Edinger-Schons (Professor of Sustainable Business and Chief Sustainability Officer, Universität Hamburg), Prof. Dr. Ali Aslan Gümüsay (Professor of Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Sustainability at the LMU Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center, Ludwig Maximilians Universität München), Amyn Vogel (Postdoctoral Researcher at the Chair of Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Sustainability, LMU München), and Felizia von Schweinitz (Doctoral Candidate at the Chair of Sustainable Business, Universität Hamburg).
