Smita Srinivas and Saku Makinen have been studying the utility of different technology transfer waste processing and absorptive capacity frameworks to see whether Finnish waste technology firms can adapt to waste processing contexts outside of Finland. Former TCLab Program Manager May Yu recently completed her thesis research studying the complexities of this process in Brazil.
The Technological Change Lab (TCLab) is a research and advisory program with international scope, with a focus on economic development in developing economies. Our focus is on processes of technological change - it's origins and implications in industry sectors, technological innovations, employment patterns, and urban and regional transformation. Every change involves considering questions of redistribution, equality, and inclusion - and what policies and planning processes will best meet these issues.
