Excellence and Renewal in Interdisciplinary Research
The IIIEE provides excellence and renewal in interdisciplinary research, involving stakeholders from government, industry, and society.
The International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) at Lund University is a unique centre and node for interdisciplinary research and education focusing on advancing sustainable solutions. There is a call globally for an increased emphasis on research impact as well as more sophisticated approaches to planning, achieving, and measuring impact from research. Broadly speaking, we consider research impact to refer to the contribution that research (and education) makes to the economy, society, environment, or culture, beyond the contribution to academia. Our impact story series are narratives that present our pathways for creating and amplifying impact. Taking a storytelling format combined with visualisations and personal interviews, the impact story series provides several ways to explore the impact of IIIEE research and education activities. We invite reflections and inputs to our work, initiatives, and future directions.
We are a centre of excellence conducting interdisciplinary and collaborative research focused on advancing sustainable solutions.
There is a genuine interdisciplinary approach to all IIIEE research. We synthesize insights not only from economic theory and practice but also from natural sciences, engineering, political science, organisational, legal and behavioural studies. We conduct research in close collaboration with business, public authorities and other societal partners.
We advance knowledge on how to catalyse the transition to low-carbon and resource efficient economies across four different themes of governance and management.
