Subject

Ricarda Scheele’s research interests are scenarios and foresight in the context of energy transition processes and sustainability. Her work focuses on methods of creation, perception and processing scenarios through social actors. In her dissertation, she explores concepts of ‘plausibility’ of scenarios and links scenarios with STS research.

Ricarda Scheele completed research stays at Arizona State and Oxford University. She has been involved in the bi-annual Oxford Scenario Programme since 2016.

Ricarda Scheele has a Bachelor of Business Administration (Hanzehoogeschool Groningen) and a Master of Science in European Governance (University of Bristol).

Within the CIB-Lab, Ricarda Schmidt-Scheele conducts research on scenarios and foresight in the context of energy system transformation and sustainability. The focus of her work is on methods for the creation, perception and processing of scenarios by social actors. In her dissertation within the IBESSA project, she dealt with epistemological and perception-theoretical perspectives on the plausibility of scenarios, including CIB-based scenarios. Ricarda completed research stays at Arizona State University and Oxford University. Since 2016 she has been involved in the semi-annual “Oxford Scenarios Programme” as a leading facilitator.
