Are you our new Director of the IIIEE?
Director of the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE)
Join our International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE), with the aim to find pathways towards low-carbon and resource efficient sustainable futures. We are looking for a highly qualified candidate to lead, develop and coordinate an interdisciplinary research and education institution with great ambitions.
The International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) is an international centre within Lund University founded in 1994 to address complex environmental challenges. To engage with this complexity, the IIIEE has developed genuine interdisciplinary education and research and the capacity to synthesize insights, not only from economic theory and practice but also from natural sciences, engineering, political science, organizational, legal and behavioural studies. The IIIEE academic staff brings together diverse expertise in these disciplines.
In contrast to the prevailing focus on environmental problems, the IIIEE emphasizes pathways towards sustainable solutions. The focus is on advancing and disseminating knowledge on how to catalyze the transition to low-carbon and resource efficient economies across different levels of governance and management. These include:
- International and national policy intervention
- Urban governance and experimentation
- Business management and practice
- Consumption governance
Close collaboration with businesses, public authorities and other societal partners is at the core of IIIEE education and research activities.
The IIIEE has approximately 25 senior researchers and 10 PhD candidates, and in total, more than 15 nationalities are represented among the staff. Each year we are engaged in approximately 30 interdisciplinary research projects funded by Swedish and international funding agencies. Over the last 5 years we have collaborated with more than 100 international research partners and more than 50 businesses, public authorities and other societal partners. The IIIEE researchers are also invited as scientific experts by a number of international organizations, such as the IPCC, the IEA, the EU Commission and UN organizations.
The IIIEE operates two international Master’s programmes, several free-standing courses, and PhD education. Each year we attract more than 50 Master’s students from all over the world to study in our international Master´s programmes. Our latest educational effort is a series of Massive Open Online Courses under the theme of ”Greening the Economy”, which so far has engaged over 120 000 participants in more than 175 countries. The IIIEE working language is English.
