Livia Bianca Fritz




Dr. Livia Fritz is an interdisciplinary social scientist drawing on approaches from political theory and Science and Technology Studies to analyze relations between science, policy and society in the field of sustainability and climate. Her work aims at understanding power dynamics and value negotiations at science-policy-society interfaces and finding ways to improve these complex interfaces for sustainability transformations and just climate governance. 

At the Center for Energy Technologies (CET) she is part of the ERC Synergy project “GeoEngineering and Negative Emissions Pathways in Europe” (GENIE), where she explores public engagement and the role of diverse expertise in the governance of emerging, yet contested, climate technologies. She, furthermore, co-leads a work package on “Co-design, public perceptions and inclusion” in the Horizon Europe project “Bridging current knowledge gaps to enable the uptake of carbon dioxide removal methods” (UPTAKE). 

Prior to joining Aarhus University, Livia held research and teaching positions at the Laboratory on Human-Environment Relations in Urban System (HERUS) at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), at the Chair for Human-Environment Relations at the Ludwig-Maximilians University (LMU), at the Austrian Foundation for Development Research (OEFSE) and was visiting scholar at Leuphana University and the Technical University of Berlin as part of a fellowship of the TdAcademy. Livia also gained experience in policy advice in both bilateral and multilateral development institutions (UNIDO, GIZ).

As a member of the board of the Swiss Academic Society for Environmental Research and Ecology (Saguf) she engages in fostering inter-and transdisciplinary approaches for sustainability transformations.

Livia studied development studies with a focus on political science at the University of Vienna and the Institut d’études politiques de Paris (Sciences Po) and received her PhD from EPFL.
