Socio-technical Co-evolution and the Greening of Industry
On February 22 an environmental and sustainability studies lecture on the socio-technical co-evolution and the greening of industry was hosted in the Fuller lecture hall. Lecturing was Dr. Christian Schulz, a professor of European sustainable spatial development and analysis from the University of Luxembourg.
Christian Schulz is Professor of European and Sustainable Spatial Development
and Analysis at the Université du Luxembourg. Since 2006, Professor
Schulz has been the head of the Identités, Politiques, Sociétés, Espaces
(Identity, Politics, Societies, and Spaces) Research Unit and the Geography and
Spatial Planning Laboratory at the University. He has written and
edited many books and published dozens on referred articles on European spatial
governance, economic geography, and spatial planning in Luxembourg.
Professor Schulz’s presentation will explore current debates around theoretical concepts that frame the greening of industry as an innovation process embedded in a broader context of societal change. Based on concepts from evolutionary economic geography, the so called socio-technical transitions approach, will be presented as a promising tool to operationalize this interplay between the technological and the social sphere.
