We are looking for a candidate who has the competence and interest in working in a new and ambitious 4-year RVO project, ‘BIPV(T) geeft mooi energie!’, which is about an innovative and integrated renovation approach for a CO2 neutral built environment by realizing a programmatic chain approach for the renovation market. You will be working in a multidisciplinary project team. The engineering partners of the project study the technical possibilities and the integration of BIPV(T) in the built environment. Your task is to study the social, economic and environmental factors that drive changes in these systems, with special attention to motivational aspects. Interviews, experiments and focus groups are the main methods for obtaining data, which is why we are looking for someone with experience with those methods. The work also involves an evaluation of impacts of BPIV at the level of a household, neighbourhood, businesses and the consequences for environmental sustainability.
