About

Research in innovation systems and sustainability transitions has undergone rapid development in the last three decades, from a small group of interested academics to a burgeoning research field with diverse approaches and a strong interdisciplinary character. This research is supported by a well organized international forum, the Sustainability Transitions Research Network (STRN). Support for the growing number of PhD students and Early Career Researchers, however, remains limited.

For that reason, we started the PhD/ECR Transitions Network to complement the support provided by STRN, catering specifically to the needs of early career researchers and doctoral candidates. Over time, as the network developed and gathered momentum, we decided to rename ourselves in order to develop both a shared identity and better reflect the purpose and aims of our community. The name chosen was NEST – The Network of Early career researchers in Sustainability Transitions.

This community comprises PhD students and early career researchers. It aims to become a focal point, resource repository and communication platform.

The present website and blog is the public face of our platform. We will post notices of events of interest for the PhD community, as well as blog posts written by our members. Contributions are very welcome!

We are constantly developing the network, and would appreciate the contribution of all interested PhDs and ECRs to help shape a focused and active community. If you are interested in becoming part of this process, finding out more about our network or learning about our upcoming events, please follow this blog and contact us at transitions.nest@gmail.com!
