12th November 2019

The University of Sussex

Lead academic:
Professor Andy Stirling, a professor in SPRU (science and technology policy research) at Sussex University, where he is also a founding co-director of the STEPS Centre.

Development of the MCM tool has been supported by the University of Sussex Enterprise Development Fund in collaboration with the Sussex Innovation Centre.

MCM is an interactive, multicriteria appraisal method for exploring contrasting perspectives on complex, uncertain and contested issues.  It aims to help ‘open up’ technical assessment by systematically ‘mapping’ the practical implications of alternative options, knowledges, framings and values.
