Social Systems Lab Learning Report 2020-2023


The Social Systems Lab at ESR integrates systems thinking and social science to collaboratively address complex challenges. This initiative explores applied social systems methods to foster innovation, and guides partners in practical systems thinking. Initially funded through the ESR Strategic Science Investment Fund (SSIF) from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), the Social Systems Lab remains the focal point for the Social Systems team's work, advocating for the widespread use of systems approaches within and beyond ESR.
