The IIIEE is a centre of excellence at Lund University advancing knowledge on how to catalyse transitions to low-carbon and resource efficient economies. The focus is on assessing governance and management processes and providing support for decision makers in public authorities and businesses.
The IIIEE is now expanding and further developing its unique interdisciplinary profile by establishing four new professorships mirroring the four strategic areas of research at the Institute. The professors will have the responsibility to develop and coordinate interdisciplinary research with a strong focus on fundraising and the development of collaboration with society.
The IIIEE welcomes all researchers interested in low-carbon and resource efficient economies to apply!
