    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Meaning; interpretive; social-ecological system; complexity; science-policy interface; transformation; sustainability science methodology; Sustainability Science; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling;

    Abstract : Social-ecological systems research is interventionist by nature. As a subset of sustainability science, social-ecological systems research aims to generate knowledge and introduce concepts that will bring about transformation. Yet scientific concepts diverge in innumerable ways when they are put to work in the world. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hybrid Research Policy : How to Organize Research Funding

    Author : Marta Cocos; Monika Berg; Jan Olsson; Joachim Åström; Jarmo Vakkuri; Örebro universitet; []
