Dear colleagues,

flexibility in choosing theoretical approaches and cases, which can range from
institutionalization processes of new biogas technologies such as liquified
biogas in production and use to attempts and strategies to achieve changes in
policies/law/narratives or imaginaries at the national level, or exporting the
Swedish Biogas Model to other countries. International case comparisons are
also welcome.

science, human geography, innovation studies, urban and regional planning,
environmental science and related social science or interdisciplinary
educations. Swedish language skills are not required.
