Organisation profile

The main vision of the Sustainability, Innovation and Policy research group is to contribute to the development of sustainability through innovative and applied research.

Research

Our research subjects are broad and cover a large spectrum of sustainability issues:

  • We have more than 20 years of experience in the field of clean tech and have a clear focus on eco-innovations within different business areas such as sustainable buildings and resource efficient products/processes. We are also researching clean tech from local and regional perspectives.
  • We have close cooperation with other research groups (e.g. the Sustainable Energy Planning research group  and the Danish Center for Environmental Assessment) in the Department focussing on climate communities in the circular economy. Pollution prevention, systems innovation and sustainable consumption and production are at the heart of this research.

A newer focus in our research is collaboration with partners from the developing South. The research falls under the Access2Innovation umbrella, which focuses on user-driven innovation, technology assessment/development and business model formation.
