Cem Gürsan is a PhD candidate of Methodology Chair at the Nijmegen School of Management, Radboud University. His work focuses on climate change, sustainability transitions, and preserving environmental stocks in transitions of socio-technical systems. Cem has been trained in systems engineering and worked as a project manager in large mechanical systems contracts. Now, Cem works with complex systems interdependencies and indirect effects of policy decisions and socio-technical systems in transitions for his research. His work involves systems dynamics and participatory modeling.

- 2020 - 2024 INSpECT: INfrastructure interdependencies in Sustainable and inclusivE CiTies. Cities are faced with the challenge of transitioning towards more sustainable modes of living. To achieve such structural change, neighbourhoods are investing in various infrastructures including those related to biomass, district heating, green gas, solar power, and hydrogen. Currently, knowledge on the potential of such transition pathways is very isolated. However, awareness is emerging that the interdependencies between these infrastructures is substantial. This project will explore these interdependencies to allow a more integrated approach towards strategic investments in transforming urban neighbourhoods. We will use participative modelling to integrate and synthesize disciplinary expertise, thereby generating new insights that transcend these disciplines. More information
