Ingrid Johansson Mignon

Associate professor, Technology Management and Economics

I am an Associate professor and Head of Unit at the Division of Innovation och R&D Management. I conduct research within the area of Innovation Studies. In my research, I strive to contribute to a better understanding of the phenomenon of large-scale diffusion of innovation, i.e. why some innovations diffuse fastest than others in Society, what actors contribute (either positively or negatively) to the diffusion of innovation and how, and how the diffusion process can – when needed – be accelerated. I am particularly interested in innovations that have the potential to solve complex societal problems, such as renewable electricity technologies or electric vehicles. The results of my research have primarily implications for policy makers, as well as for individuals, households, public organizations (such as municipalities) and companies.
