Wouter Boon and Karin Geuijen recently founded UU’s Centre on Scaling for Societal Change. This centre will focus its research on multiple pathways of embedding innovations in society in the context of ‘grand challenges’, including pathways representing multiple actors, sectors, levels and institutional logics. The Centre on Scaling for Societal Challenges will be launched by presenting and discussing two perspectives on new pathways in diffusion of innovations.
