DRIFT at the Erasmus University Rotterdam is a leading institute in the field of Sustainability Transitions, Transition Governance and Transformative Research. Founded in 2004, it combines cutting edge research on sustainability transitions, policy, governance and (social) innovation, with high-level consultancy and training programs for governmental institutions, businesses, and intermediary organisations.
DRIFT has a long track record of national and international research and advisory collaborations resulting in an extensive pan-European network. It has both coordinated and partnered on a number of EU and nationally funded research projects. Typical topics include sustainability transitions in specific domains such as energy (e.g. TRAPESES, PROSEU), urban and regional sustainability transitions (e.g. ARTS, InContext, GUST, SMART-U-GREEN, URBES), and transformative social innovation (e.g. TRANSIT, SIC).
