Governance of the STRN network is based on four structural elements.

A Board, including a chair, which coordinates the network and has responsibility for core operational tasks. The Steering group (SG), which elects the board members from its midst, gives strategic advice to the board members on the development of the network and fulfills a number of tasks described below. Working groups that coordinate strategic tasks in a temporary, project based way and Thematic groups, which are longer-term fora for interaction on specific research topics.


The STRN Board coordinates the network and is responsible for core organizational tasks such as newsletter, website or interaction with third parties on behalf of STRN.

Steering group

The steering group gives strategic advice to the board members on the development of the network.

Steering group (SG) members are experienced transition scholars and / or those who play or want to play an active role in developing the STRN network further.

The SG strives for representational diversity, e.g. in terms of gender, age, topics, research groups and region.
