Innovation and Resource Efficiency

Sustainable development requires new technologies as well as a broad variety of societal innovations to improve the quality of life worldwide while reducing our ecological impacts. Knowledge and innovation will be the key drivers to increase resource efficiency in the years ahead. In our research we focus on different interfaces: between innovation policies and corporate innovation strategies, between new technologies and their embedding into societal innovation, between R&D and uptake of new technologies. Our research findings contribute to a theory of sustainable innovation and transition management.
