Stephan Barthel is the director of a challenge driven research program on urban sustainability at the University of Gävle. It is having the mission to stimulate the integration of socio-technical environmental research with that of social-ecological urban research. In this way this strategic research program aims to develop a holistic system perspective on sustainable urban development in the Anthropocene, having the unique goal to create “bio-socio-technical solutions” for improving urban resilience while aiming for sustainability transitions with global repercussions. Furthermore it has the mission to translate academic research into trans-disciplinary collaborations and co-creation projects with actors outside academia.
