LANDSCAPE AND PARTICIPATORY PLANNING
Planning and participatory research is mainly studied in Uppsala University, campus Gotland and at Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU).
Social aspects of wind energy development involves many different stake holders, and research often involve many partners. Our work benefits from collaboration and interaction with industry, authorities, academia, NGOs, as well as the general public. In the study programs we collaborate with the industry and public authorities through, for instance, internships and seminars.
Some research topics include:
-Policies and politics
-International, national and regional planning
-Environmental impact assessment
-Energy justice – procedure, recognition and distribution
