This workshop aims to establish a new research agenda around the ways in which existing and new methodological approaches can contribute to study social and technological change.

Transitions scholars have begun to search for new methods and indicators to study transitions. This chimes with research in areas such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, that call for new indicators, models and methodological approaches to evaluate the implementation of these agendas (Ramirez, Romero, Schot, & Arroyave, 2019). Following, this the transitions research community has called for the development of a “structured navigation” method and a “formal model” to study transformation and sustainability agendas (Köhler et al., 2017, 43-47).
