Transitions Research will shed light on radical transformations that will shape India’s long-term future.

We are on the precipice of immense change, challenge and opportunity. Transition pathways related to - low carbon and climate resilient development; smart, sustainable and inclusive urbanization; safe, responsible and equitable digitalization of society, and food systems that meet growing demand for food while protecting the environment are complex and uncertain. Radical shifts in socio-technical systems, human values and politics need to be imagined.

Incremental change will not do.

Our mission is to illuminate pathways that ensure these transitions are just, feasible and sustainable. We conduct multidisciplinary research to generate anticipatory knowledge and policy insights on the complex interplay between technology, society and sustainability in transition processes.
