Is the Innovation Society sustainable? We argue that the way in which our society organizes its innovation processes generates endogenous crises, and the ideology that sustains this organization makes it difficult to confront this meta-crisis economically or politically. We claim that the key to constructing a socially sustainable future is the mobilization of civil society, with respect to two new forms of innovation policy. ICT will play a crucial role in the process of mobilization and the implementation of these new policy forms.
