My Public Summary

How companies can facilitate sustainable transitions

Lotte Meijer explored how companies deal with specific contexts in the upscaling of sustainable innovations.

To face today’s major challenges, society needs more sustainable forms of energy and mobility. Increasing the adoption and uptake of sustainable innovations in society means taking the local context, the individuals and companies within it, into account. Lotte Meijer explored how companies of different sizes deal with specific contexts (regional, national, international) in the upscaling of sustainable innovations across four different countries: the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain and Australia.

She defended her PhD on 16 June 2020.
