Social innovation in the energy transition
The platform of Social Innovation in the Energy Transition – founded in 2017 – supports this endeavour. We further develop research into social innovation in the energy transition, also in relation to other research of the Urban Energy Institute at Delft University of Technology, and academic and professional research outside TU Delft. We seek to strengthen the tradition of social science energy research at TU Delft, which is distinctive because of its interdisciplinary, societal and policy relevance.
What we do
The platform on Social Innovation in the Energy Transition supports knowledge exchange and deliberation between inter alia academic researchers, energy community members, and professionals from both the public and private sectors. This includes valorisation and dissemination of results from relevant academic and professional studies. In addition, the platform seeks to bring partners into contact with each other, and encourage them to start collaboration. For instance in co-researching topics relevant to social innovation in the energy transition, co-developing joint symposia, webinars or conferences, or co-developing (research) project proposals. More in general, the platform seeks to empower the research community active in research about social innovation in the energy transition, and related topics and domains.
