Members of the 3S group have organised panel sessions at three different European conferences over the summer of 2016 on the topic of relational and systemic approaches to public participation in science, innovation and sustainability transitions. These panels all draw on conceptual, methodological and empirical innovations in the 3S group from the recent Remaking Participation book and from our energy focussed projects, particularly in the Realising Transition Pathways project, and the Systemic participation and decision-making in UK energy transitions project.
