Research in systems innovation and sustainability transitions has undergone rapid development in the last two decades, from a small group of interested academics to a burgeoning research field with diverse approaches and a strong interdisciplinary character.
To support the growing number of PhD students and Early Career Researchers, the PhD/ECR Transitions Network “NEST” was founded to complement the support provided by STRN, catering specifically to the needs of early career researchers and doctoral candidates. The aim of this network is to provide resources, learn from each other and faciliate interaction and collaboration.
