Traditional linear evaluation approaches are not able to address the dynamic interrelationships and feedback mechanisms involved in the increasingly complex social environment. To meet the challenges of complexity, new evaluation approaches are required. This chapter contributes to this discussion by suggesting a new integrative evaluation approach which combines foresight, multi-criteria evaluation and system dynamic modelling into the evaluation process. The developed methodology is applied in the evaluation of the Finnish Innovation Fund, Sitra.
