Expertise

My expertise is in eco-innovation, environmental policy, innovation policy, governance for sustainable development and societal transitions. I have domain expertise in the energy, transport, waste & eco-industry sectors. I am a multidisciplinary researcher who has published in innovation journals, environmental and ecological economics journals, policy journals, transport journals, and sustainable development journals. My research activities made me reflect on knowledge production for sustainable development, which then became a topic of reseach. As a professor of innovation and sustainable development I try to understand and appraise eco-innovation developments and offer policy advice to create a better world.

How I view the world

I am viewing the world from an evolutionary institutionalist perspective. Of the large realm of innovation possibilities, a few get selected and become the basis for further development. An important distinction is between regime-preserving innovations and regime-shifting change. Regime-shifting innovations are typically resisted by regime actors because they are game changing (transformative). In two articles in Futures I have written about this. For escaping lock-in, the models of strategic niche management and transition management, which I developed with others, may be of use.

As a theorist I was influenced by evolutionary economists Richard Nelson and Stanley Metcalfe and by institutionalists James March and Johan Olsen. Arie Rip, Keith Smith and Chris Freeman also influenced me as did many others I worked with. I combined the different insights from innovation studies and governance studies into the model of guided evolution as a model for sustainable development.

Consultation for policy

For the Environment Council of July 2004 I wrote a policy note on strategies for eco-efficient innovation, which fed into the Council's conclusions. For the Dutch government I developed the steering model of transition management, together with Jan Rotmans and Marjolein van Asselt. This model was used by the Dutch government who adopted our views on transition management as an approach for innovation policy.

Current activities

I just finished a 5-year research project on sustainable mobility. In this project co-evolution processes are being studied of user practices, transport innovations, government policies - how these give rise to new patterns and resistance. Results of the projects and other mobility studies are brought together in the book Automobility in transition? edited by Frank Geels, Geoff Dudley, Glenn Lyons and myself. The book will come out in 2012 (publisher is Routledge). Book trailer: http://www.sustainabilitytransitions.com/en/book/automobility book introduction

Another recent project is “Measuring eco-innovation” (MEI ) for the European Commission which started in Febr 2007 and ended in 2008. The project defines eco-innovation and examines methodological challenges in developing indicators and statistics on eco-innovation. The project is being done by eco-innovation experts from various institutes (MERIT, ZEW, ICL, Riso and LEIA) together with Eurostat, the European Environment Agency (EEA) and Joint Research Center of the European Commission. http://www.merit.unu.edu/MEI

In 2010 I was involved in the Global Energy Assessment in the chapter on policies for capacity development (led by Lynn Mytelka).

With Anthony Arundel and Minna Kanerva I studied the innovation policy implications of the climate change, resource scarcity and demographic change (Innogrips project). Results of the analysis and recommendations for policy can be found at http://www.proinno-europe.eu/inno-grips-ii/workshop/implications-climate-change-resource-scarcity-and-demographic-developments-in

A new project is EmInInn: Environmental Macro Indicators of Innovation. Funded by the EU, EMInInn will assess macro-economic impacts of eco-innovation. I will identify and describe the relevant innovations, aggregate the innovations in useful categories, map out diffusion of innovations in scenarios, and parameterise socio-technical change for model simulations and estimations about macro- effects. It is led by the Wuppertal Institute.

Another new project is “Diffusion Strategy of Green Technology and Green Industry in Africa”. The broad objective of the study (which started in Sept 2012 and will run until Dec 2013) is to analyse the status of adoption of energy efficiency measures and renewable energy technologies (RET), their sources, potential, drivers and barriers in Africa with experiences of Kenya and Nigeria examined as pilot cases. The adoption of energy-efficiency measures is studied for the maize industry in Kenya and cassava industry in Nigeria. Findings of the study should help draw lessons for supportive policies in Africa and other parts of the world in terms of technology transfer and cooperation. The project engages in original data collection through survey analysis and case studies. The project is done in cooperation with UNIDO and ATPS and funded by KEEI in South Korea. I am the project leader of this project.

At ICIS, I am involved in three reseach projects: Inspirator, Organext and POLFREE. Inspirator analyses the coproduction of knowledge in transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary research projects on global change and sustainability in the Netherlands. Organext is an Euregional research and innovation project about the development of novel nanomaterials and innovative deposition techniques for next generation electro-optical applications, and in particular thin-film solar cells. It a cooperative project of universities and companies in the Euregion around Hasselt/Maastricht. POLFREE is a 4 year study for the European Commission into the reasons for resource inefficiency in Europe and how this may be overcome through policy.
