A first attempt in shaping learning communities for the energy transition
Keywords:Learning communities, installation sector, energy transition, professional development
Learning communities (LCs) can be seen as an promising concept to shape professional development and thereby enhance innovation for the energy transition. However, as the design of an LC is dependent on the needs of the participating organizations and the problems they want to solve, no general blue prints are available for shaping an LC. Therefore, this study aims to find an answer to the question: How should LCs for the energy transition be designed to support participants’ professional development and stimulate innovation? First, a literature study and needs assessment was conducted at eight SMEs in the installation sector, which led to an LC prototype. The LC prototype was then tested in four different SME’s which eventually provided an LC prototype for the installation sector that stimulates professional development and innovation.
