Welcome to the website of the Sustainability Transitions Research Network (STRN) official site. STRN was inaugurated in June 2009 at the 1st European Conference on Sustainability Transitions. The mission of the network is:

 

  • to provide a meeting place for the international  and multi-disciplinary community of scholars working in the field of sustainability transitions;
  • to deepen the scientific understanding of sustainability transitions through a program of networking, research coordination and synthesis activities;
  • to be a leading resource for practitioners such as actors in the arenas of policy making, civil society, and business who are working to advance societies into more sustainable directions.

 

STRN is a wholly independent research-driven network governed by a steering group composed of leading researchers in the field. Membership of the STRN is open to anyone who is interested in research on sustainability transitions. The network aims to provide a space where researchers can engage in a vibrant intellectual exchange on the challenges of sustainability and find help and support in accessing resources, research topics and audiences for their work.

 

STRN works to improve scientific understanding of sustainability transitions through a program of networking, research coordination and synthesis activities organized around eight research themes (see the network’s research agenda) that together define the research and policy challenges that the network is currently engaged with. The network promotes an active, energetic and well connected research community with an associated international journal (Environmental Innovation and Societal Transitions).

 

STRN coordinates scientific capacity within the network towards the production of foresight reports on strategic sustainability policy questions. The ambition of the network is to support the development of a sustainability transitions research community internationally, and provide an independent, authoritative and credible source of analysis and insight into the dynamics and governance of sustainability transitions.
