On the 4th of February 2015 the Transition Academy will host an intensive training day for graduate and postgraduate level students and researchers interested to learn more about transition research. Motivated third year bachelor students and professionals with an academic background are also welcome to attend.
Transition studies comprise a field of academic research that focuses on processes of long term change towards sustainability. In the past decade transition studies have developed into an internationally recognized field of academic research, involving renowned research institutes across the world, see: the Sustainability Transitions Research Network (STRN).
Within this network, the Dutch Research Institute for Transitions (DRIFT) specialises in transition Management and action research: the translation between scientific research and practical action. Transition management is an innovative governance concept based on complexity theory, social theories and insights from the field of governance. It aims to deal with persistent societal problems by exploring and furthering more sustainable systems.
