To map this dynamic field, scientists from the Erasmus School of Law, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) and Erasmus School of Philosophy engage in a multidisciplinary collaboration.

More about this research


The DRIFT-led European research project JustWind4All started, supporting the acceleration of on- and offshore wind energy, including emerging wind technologies like airborne and floating, through just and effective governance. This includes setting up 5 regional wind labs across Europe: regional testing grounds that use innovative approaches to tackle the main challenges of just and sustainable wind energy development.
