Über mich

Christian Binz ist ein Gruppenleiter im Cluster für Nachhaltigkeitstransitionen und Business Innovationen (CIRUS) im Departement für Umweltsozialwissenschaften an der Eawag und ein assoziierter Post-Doktorand bei CIRCLE, Lund Universität, Schweden.


Er bestand sein Doktorat in Wirtshaftsgeographie im Jahr 2012 an der Universität Bern. Christian erhielt ein 'Giorgio Ruffolo Post-doctoral Research Fellowship in Sustainability Science' (2015) von der Harvard Kennedy School of Government und hat als Post-Doktorand an der Universität Lund (Schweden), der UC Berkeley (USA), der Tsinghua University (China) und an der Eawag gearbeitet.

Sein Forschungsinteresse fokussiert auf das Potential für transformativen Wandel im Wasser- und Energiesektor. Durch eine neue Kombination von Einsichten aus der Wirtschaftsgeographie, Transitionsstudien und der Nachhaltigkeitsforschung analysiert er, wie multi-skalare institutionelle Kontexte radikale Innovationen in Cleantechsektoren und Nachhaltigkeitstransitionen beeinflussen.
