The development of a more sustainable built environment requires a wide-spread use of resource-efficient innovations. In order to design effective intervention measures, it is important to understand the process by which innovations are developed and spread in the society, and what affects potential users' decisions. This course includes various theories on diffusion of innovations and their applications to the built environment.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
