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.
