This paper introduces a systemic and future-oriented evaluation approach designed to meet the challenges of the changing innovation environment. The introduced framework combines different R&D evaluation methods to support strategic decision-making in networked and complex socio-technical environments. The approach interfaces with the other evaluation approaches that have been developed to strengthen interactive elements in evaluation. Our paper discusses the special characteristics and additional value our approach has compared to other approaches.
