Transitions to low-carbon and resource efficient economies – four new professors at the IIIEE
The International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) was established in 1994 as an international centre at Lund University to address complex environmental challenges. Over the years, the IIIEE has developed into a unique interdisciplinary centre of excellence synthesizing insights form various disciplines to advance knowledge on how to catalyse transitions to low-carbon and resource efficient economies. The focus is on assessing governance and management processes and providing support for decision makers in public authorities and businesses.
Since its foundation, the IIIEE education and research has been truly interdisciplinary, collaborative and international. The IIIEE has pioneered a range of activities including interdisciplinary research, high quality international Master’s programmes and award-winning on-line courses including MOOCs. Researchers are invited as scientific experts by a number of international organisations, such as the IPCC, the IEA, the EU Commission and UN organisations. The time has now come to expand and further develop the interdisciplinary profile and platform for collaboration at the IIIEE – this by the establishment of four new professorships.
We are happy to invite you to the seminar ”Transitions to low-carbon and resource efficient economies” on Friday 15th of September! At the seminar our four new professors at IIIEE will introduce themselves and their research and research interests within the four focus areas.
