Socio-technical Transitions and Social Learning

This body of research draws on the multilevel perspective on socio-technical transitions, which has been widely adopted by the technologic innovation community, to explain how one dominant type of technology is replaced with another dominant technology. In collaboration with Philip Vergragt I explored small-scale multistakeholder experiments with new technologies as the platforms for higher order learning and for fostering systemic change.We specifically focused on technological innovations in personal mobility, high performance building construction and retrofitting the existing housing stock to higher energy performance.
