Transition, Innovation and Sustainability Environments, TISE
European Master of Excellence / Erasmus Mundus Joint Master

Master of Science

The Master of Science in “Transition, Innovation and Sustainability Environments” is a newly designed European program towards mastering societal transition processes. The focus of TISE is on sustainable and resilient societal, business and industry processes and structures. Through its strong transdisciplinary approach (i.e. a method guided by mutual learning processes between science and practice), students on this program will gain a comprehensive understanding of relevant coupled human-nature-technology systems (respectively ‘human environment systems’), positive and negative mechanisms and effects of transitional processes (including underlying obvious and hidden rebound effects), and interventions together with the innovation potential therein. Using a hierarchical system perspective, the program encompasses the individual agents, teams, organizations, networks, and clusters, within regional, national and supranational systems, and ultimately global implications. Building on a Complexity Science fundament the program presents an inter and cross-disciplinary view of Socio Cultural Studies, Social Sciences, Economics, Technology and Design, but also integrating communities of practice and the tacit knowledge of practitioners in order to address “real-world” complex problems. The program promotes Transdiciplinarity as an innovative approach towards the challenges encountered by social systems today.
