Scientific and Policy Advisory

Transformative Partnerships 2030 benefits from strong cooperation with world leading scholars and practitioners.

The research team has strong cooperation with world-leading scholars in the fields of political science, organizational studies, public policy, political economy, international relations, global environmental and sustainability governance, and more. We are also deeply involved with policy processes at the national and global levels and strive to communicate our research findings with practitioners. This project benefits from its Scientific Advisory Board, which will be invited to participate in annual project workshops and to comment on or contribute to joint publications and conference panels. The project also has a Practitioners' Advisory Council, which functions as a sounding board for the research team. It consists of both national and international decision-makers and stakeholders and is invited to comment on research outputs and provide feedback on the selection of cases and other topics.
