The Case of Lada (Asturias) and Velilla del Río Carrión (Palencia)


Complex challenges such as just energy transition require an approach that addresses not only the replacement or creation of new jobs, but also provides answers to interconnected issues such as migration and ageing of the population, deindustrialisation, the transformation of the economic activity of a territory and the conditioning factors towards its historical identity (mining, industry...), etc.

The Lada and Velilla Innovation Platform is a multi-stakeholder partnership, made up of two university innovation centres and an electricity company, created to address the closure of two coal-fired power plants in Spain using the working approach of the social innovation platforms.
