Technology and Society Lab

The Technology and Society Lab (TSL) aims at creating and transferring knowledge to support the transition to a more sustainable society. It does so by

  • analysing novel materials and emerging technology applications with a focus on associated material and
    energy stocks and flows,
  • evaluating them with regard to both natural environment and societal constraints, and
  • providing guidance for the implementation of more sustainable materials, technologies and sociotechnical
    systems.
