Joined the Department of Industrial Economics and Technology Management in June 2022 as a PhD Candidate within TripleDeep project (https://www.ntnu.no/sustainability/prosjekter).
The project called "The Deep Dilemmas: Deep Sea Mining for the new Deep Transition?" (TripleDeep) has an objective to investigate whether Deep Sea Mining can provide a new source of critically important minerals in a sustainable manner. Research will include analysis of social, technological, economic and ecological dimensions of mineral extraction on the seabed. Farida is going to work on economic analysis under the supervision of professor Verena Hagspiel (main supervisor) and Steinar Løve Ellefmo (co-supervisor). This projects asks whether and how to enable necessary investments in radically new technology and infrastructure, given regulatory uncertainty and the risk of stranded assets. The aim is to identify policies that could support technological development needed for socially and ecologically acceptable DSM.
