Work field: Governance of nanotechnology and other emerging technologies, Sustainable consumption, Energy use

Harald Throne-Holst graduated from The Norwegian Institute of Technology with a Masters degree in Inorganic Chemistry in 1994. In 2012 he finished his PhD 'Consumers, Nanotechnology and responsibilities: Operationalizing the risk society' at the Faculty of Mangement and Governance at the University in Twente. He started working at SIFO in 1996, and he has mainly been concerned with: 



  • ethical and societal aspects of nanotechnology, including governance aspects

  • consumption and the environment

  • energy use
