Phedeas Stephanides

img1Senior Researcher in the Norwich Business School

I am an environmental social scientist conducting interdisciplinary, critically-constructive research around societal engagement with sustainability. I am especially interested in: (a) radical grassroots innovation movements, (b) socio-technical transitions in addressing sustainability challenges, and (c) the mundane and distributed engagements with the sustainability agenda in everyday life.

Having recently completed my PhD research on community currencies developed in the wake of the Greek economic crisis as tools for sustainable degrowth, I am currently a Senior Research Associate at the Norwich Business School, University of East Anglia. My current work finds me contributing towards the completion of the internationally acclaimed TILOS-Horizon and ICE (Intelligent Community Energy) projects – exploring aspects of societal engagement around energy futures and smart energy feedback in the context of insular energy systems and islands.
