Dr Senni Määttä is a social and public policy researcher with a PhD in Environmental Planning. Her research has focused on social perspectives to decarbonization challenges and the role of the public in socio-technical transitions. She has advanced a systemic understanding of decarbonization challenges through the concept of ‘Whole-of-Society approach’.
In her PhD, Senni studied the governance of public involvement in the energy transition in The Republic of Ireland and Scotland, adapting the Governmentality approach, the Whole-of-Society approach, multi-stakeholder analysis, and diverse qualitative methods.
Currently, as a researcher in the Calby2030 project her work focuses on societal aspects of industrial decarbonization through carbon capture and storage, and analysis of stakeholder dynamics. Her work aims to provide insights and solutions to the social aspects of implementing carbon capture and storage as a part of decarbonization approaches.

- 2022 - 2026 Calby 2030 CaLby2030 is a European project granted under Horizon Europe framework programme. The main goal is to act as enabling tool to achieve, by 2030, commercial deployment of Calcium Looping technology (CaL) using Circulating Fluidised Bed reactors. Three pilot plants will be used in Germany, Sweden and Spain to demonstrate >99% CO2 capture rates in three hard to abate industrial sectors: cement, steel and waste to energy. More information
- 2018 - 2022 MISTRAL-ITN MISTRAL (Multi-sectoral approaches to Innovative Skills Training for Renewable energy & sociAL acceptance) received funding as an Innovative Training Network from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions. The main aim of the project was to train a new generation of researchers who can evaluate the complexity of social acceptance issues facing the deployment of renewable energy infrastructure, and propose innovative solutions in a variety of research, government and business contexts.
