Oksana Mont is one of five researchers at Lund University who has been awarded ERC Consolidator Grants from the European Research Council (ERC) in the 2017 round of awards. 

The task of the European Research Council (ERC) is to promote research of the highest quality through extensive and long-term funding. The prestigious ERC Consolidator Grants each amount to EUR 2 million over five years to the five researchers.

Oksana Mont, who is professor of sustainable consumption at the IIIEE, has been awarded ERC funding for the research programme Urban Sharing: Sustainability and Institutionalisation Pathways. The programme focuses on the sharing economy in urban environments, sustainability and institutionalisation processes. The Urban Sharing research programme aims to investigate, test and advance knowledge about design, sustainability and institutionalisation processes in urban sharing organisations (USOs) in five cities on five continents: Amsterdam, Toronto, São Paolo, Seoul and Melbourne.

“The funding is right on time. We are facing a phenomenon under rapid development in society, but we lack theoretical support and methods to understand the impact of this phenomenon. I am working with a strong research team and all of us are ready and looking forward to making this ‘journey’ to find solutions to the sustainability challenges facing our cities”, says professor Oksana Mont.
