Towards the IST 2021 – call for papers, website and key dates

“Mainstreaming sustainability transitions: From research towards impact”

With the call for IST 2021 – “Mainstreaming sustainability transitions: From research towards impact” we invite reflection on how we, as a research community, can make sure that our work has real-world impact supporting transition processes towards a more sustainable future. How we can go beyond our current ambition of supporting socio-technological change processes, and push more towards having real impact?

 We are planning on organizing IST 2021 along a hybrid format to allow participation and interaction from around the world (the concrete final conference format is subject to change according to the development of the global Covid-19 situation). The conference is hosted by Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI.
