Misum Stakeholder Engagement Officer – with focus on sustainable markets Part-time, temporary employment

The Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets (Misum) is a cross-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder knowledge platform at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). We are a cosmopolitan mix of ca 40 researchers from different departments and more than 10 countries, plus an inspiring management team, who work collaboratively to make SSE a world-class reference for sustainability in economics and to contribute to a sustainable development of markets in practice. Our mission is based on the trinity of research, education and engagement with stakeholders, whereas all of them are based on rigorous scientific knowledge production to understand the prerequisites of sustainable markets and develop pathways and measures for different actors how to get there.

We are funded by the Mistra Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research to accelerate research collaborations and translate our findings to the specific situations of stakeholders from business, politics, and civil society. Considering the so-called “knowledge-solution-gap” in adapting sustainability solutions in practice, our aim is to make distinct “science-based targets” and their implications more visible in the business community and important fora for decision-makers, and to intensify the dialogue about how they can be reached.
