  •  Lessons learnt from previous cases: To map the cases in SYKE and more general in Finland studying sustainable economic systems and assess the experiences from those
  •  Sustainability clinic trials: To test the feasibility of sustainability assessments in small and medium-sized companies (SMEs)
  •  Synthesis and proposals for future work: To synthetize the data and results, make comparisons and make proposals for future research projects
