The Synthesis Project aims to study the processes and find out which collaborative methods enhance learning and mutual understanding.
The Investment Theme invites researchers and social stakeholders to collaboratively investigate how the materials transition could take place. Specifically, researchers from different disciplines work together with societal stakeholders on cases that serve as examples of the material transition within the textile and building materials sector.
The Investment Theme aims to facilitate the collaboration between different stakeholders. The Synthesis Project strives to analyze which collaborative approaches work best to facilitate the materials transition.
The Synthesis Project studies the collaborative processes within the Investment Theme. Sustainability transitions require the collaboration of people with different values, beliefs, and worldviews. Different worldviews may literally affect how people view the world and specific problems. To comprehensively understand transitions, it is vital to include many different stakeholders and their views. However, such collaborative processes are challenging because of potentially diverging views. The Synthesis Project aims to study the processes and find out which collaborative methods enhance learning and mutual understanding.
