Using the multi-level perspective (MLP) to guide the enquiry, Sam’s project is applying the theory of anchoring to explore technological, network and institutional interactions between the so-called niche and regime. He is equating scaling with the journey from niche to regime and is drawing a distinction between scaling-up and scaling-out.
Sam Beechener is a PhD Candidate in a collaborative project between SRUC, the Universities of Edinburgh and Wageningen and AgResearch in New Zealand. The focus of Sam’s study is on how co-innovation impacts on scaling-up and scaling-out in the agri-food sector - this represents a continuation of interest as it builds on his previous practical experience with ADAS, one of the UK’s leading providers of environmental and rural consultancy. email@example.com
