Research at the CST is largely conducted in collaborative inter- and transdisciplinary teams that draw in expertise from different disciplines as well as from policy, practice and local stakeholders. Much of the research is funded by external project grants, and students are part of the larger project teams which provides additional opportunities for learning and research support.

Research at the CST is focused on five research groups:

  1. Complexity
  2. Urban Transitions
  3. Resilience and Transformation
  4. Renewable Energy for Transitions (RE4T)
  5. Transformative Transdisciplinary Research
