February 16, 2016: SusValueWaste seminar with Lea Fünfschilling at NIFU

Fünfschilling's current research interests are centered on understanding the dynamics of socio-technical change and innovation in infrastructure sectors (e.g. water) by focusing on different aspects of institutions, actors and technology as well as their interrelatedness.

Lea Fünfschilling is a PostDoctoral fellow at CIRCLE, Lund University and a lecturer at the Department of Sociology, University of Lucerne. She holds a PhD in Sociology from the University of Basel. Her dissertation is entitled „A dynamic model of socio-technical change. Institutions, actors and technology in interaction” and was published in 2014.

Her current research interests are centered on understanding the dynamics of socio-technical change and innovation in infrastructure sectors (e.g. water) by focusing on different aspects of institutions, actors and technology as well as their interrelatedness. Special attention is thereby devoted to the process of institutionalization of new, potentially more sustainable socio-technical configurations.

The seminar is open and it will be at NIFU, will start at 12:00 and will end at 14:30.

You are welcome to join the seminar.
