Sustainability Transition Assessment (STA)

In Sustainability Transition Assessment (STA) we aim to better understand societal responses to environmental challenges, evaluate their effectiveness, and estimate their impacts on the environment. STA relates to sustainability transitions in the industrial and energy sectors, where climate neutrality and circularity require the transformation of large industrial clusters and the implementation of new technologies that are not yet competitive, fully developed, or have generated societal awareness and support. We develop, test, and improve methods for evaluating the environmental impacts of new technologies, assess societal readiness and improve societal engagement.
