The Dutch Research Institute For Transitions


DRIFT is a leading research institute in the field of sustainability transitions. We develop and share transformative knowledge to support people, cities, sectors and organisations to engage proactively with transitions.

DRIFT has four main activities that complement, ground and inspire each other: academic research, consultancy,  educationand public dialogue & debate.

The strong link between all of our activities allows us to combine theory-development with critical feedback and various ways of testing and validating our insights. It also enables us to keep our research relevant to a wide variety of actors.
