Research interests

Stephan is interested in understanding how policy is innovated across the dimensions of invention, diffusion and evaluation, in order to accelerate energy and sustainability transitions.  As complexity is rising along with multiple crisis that involve several jurisdictions, in his PhD he will investigate preconditions of successful policy integration. Another focus will be on how recent usage of economic modelling and ex-ante impact assessment influences policy design and how these methods can be informed by insights from ex-post evaluation. His research is part of the EU Horizon project DECIPHER: Decision-making framework and processes for holistic evaluation of environmental and climate policies.
