Ingo Wolf

Senior Research Associate

Ingo Wolf is a senior researcher in the group Ways to a Sustainable Energy Supply since 2019. His research focuses on attitude and acceptance research, transformation of social systems and social sustainability. In the Kopernikus project "Ariadne - Evidence-based Assessment for the Design of the German Energiewende" he is working on social aspects of the energy and mobility transformation. Before joining the IASS, Ingo Wolf worked at the Free University Berlin, the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences and the Max Planck Institute for Human Development. In this context, he conducted studies on the acceptance of mobility innovations and developed new methods to investigate transformation processes in social systems.
