Project management

The project is organised with a project leader (PI), prof. Kirsten Gram Hanssen, who is supported by a management team (MT) consisting of prof. Per Heiselberg, Prof. Susse Georg, and Dr. Anders Horsbøl. PI will be responsible for all practical and day-to-day management, in close cooperation with the MT. MT will meet every half year during the working retreat seminars, and will furthermore have two skype-meetings a year in between the seminars.  

Research partners

The InterHUB project consists of the following four research groups:

Research Group on Sustainable Cities and everyday practices

The research group’s focus is on social and environmental aspects of housing and urban issues. A strong international agenda has been the study of households’ everyday practices related to energy consumption based on theoretical approaches from sociology of consumption, including theories of practices.

Architectural Engineering, Department of Civil Engineering

The division’s main research field includes analysis, design, construction, and operation of engineering systems for energy efficient buildings. It focuses on an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to achieve optimal building designs and pays special attention to building impacts on the indoor climate as well as the surrounding environment. Research has in the past 10 years been targeted analysis, design and operation of near zero energy buildings, including their interaction with users and energy systems.

The Sustainable Transitions research group

conducts research on the organizational, institutional, and economic challenges that sustainable transitions involve in different empirical domains, e.g. energy systems, construction and the built environment. With a strong base in science and technology studies, emphasis is given to analyzing the involved actors’ actions in relation to existing governance arrangements and attempts to change them.

Department of Communication

Since 2005 a group of researchers has done research regarding user and citizen involvement concerning green transition and sustainability. Focus is on dilemmas in design, implementation, innovation and evaluation of digital technologies from the point of view of the end-user experience. Methodologically, communication theory, text and action is the subject for investigation, and data is collected in situ of action and analysed with actors.
