Ingrid Mignon, Associate Professor, Chalmers University of Technology

Ingrid conducts research in the field of Innovation Studies, with a specific interest on the large-scale diffusion of innovations and technology transition in society. Over the last 10 years, her primary focus has been on actors of the transition, such as adopters, intermediaries and policymakers, as well as mechanisms facilitating the uptake of new technologies, e.g., policies, business models and digital platforms. Empirically, she has mainly conducted research within the energy and transportation sectors. Her research has been published in a variety of scientific journals, including Energy Policy, Environmental Innovation and Societal Transition, Journal of Cleaner Production and Technology Analysis & Strategic Management.

Lisa Winberg, PhD Candidate, Chalmers University of Technology

Lisa Winberg is a Ph.D. student at the division of Innovation and R&D Management at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. Her research focuses on how public energy advising can be used as a policy instrument to contribute to a large-scale diffusion of solar PV. Her study context is municipal energy and climate advisors in Sweden, and she uses insights from the fields of sustainability transitions, energy policy, and intermediaries. Her research interests are in the transition to a sustainable energy system and the policies needed to achieve it. Lisa holds a B.Sc. in chemical engineering and an M.Sc. in sustainable energy systems from Chalmers University of Technology.
