Marianna works very closely with business, intermediaries, governmental organisations and users, both when doing research and when disseminating research results. Since starting to work at Linköping University in 2015, she has collaborated with large multinational businesses as well as SMEs, start-ups, incubators, business developers and the county administrative board. She actively seeks projects and works together with her colleagues to build up circular economy competence and circular ecosystems in the region of Östergötland.
She is as committed to disseminating research as to conducting it and has given over 30 popular science talks, presentations and workshops for CEO groups, intermediaries, school children and the public, in addition to writing several company reports, practitioner guidelines and making popular science videos. By participating as teaching staff in five courses for both students and lifelong learners, as well as regularly supervising master thesis, Marianna ensures that the knowledge obtained through research also reaches students.
From January 2024, Marianna is also Director of Studies at the division of Environmental Management and Technology overseeing the teaching activities of over 40 members of staff and approximately 24 courses.
