Jonathan Feddersen is a Postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Organization and the Centre for Organization and Time (COT). Jonathan’s research focuses on the interplay between the temporal, spatial, and material dimensions of organizing, focusing on empirical cases of (sustainable) innovation. In addition, he engages in the development of event-based methods for organizational process studies. Jonathan has published in Organization Studies and regularly presents at international conferences. He is a member of the European Group for Organizational Studies (EGOS) as well as the Academy of Management’s Organization and Management Theory (OMT) and Organization and Natural Environment (ONE) divisions. Jonathan’s research won the 2019 Andreas Al-Laham Best Paper Award by the EGOS Standing Working Group on Social Networks and his dissertation was a finalist for the 2022 Grigor McClelland Award awarded by the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies (SAMS) and EGOS.

In his current research, Jonathan works with Ørsted, a Danish renewable energy company, investigating the role of marine nature-based solutions in working towards Ørsted’s goal of becoming biodiversity net positive by 2030. This study forms part of the ‘Actionable Futures’ project (https://bit.ly/3n8iHnd), co-directed by Prof. Majken Schultz and Prof. Tor Hernes and funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. Previously, Jonathan has been a Postdoctoral fellow at Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany, working with Prof. Boukje Cnossen and Prof. Matthias Wenzel on a project studying the temporality of a regional startup accelerator initiative. For his dissertation, titled ‘The temporal emergence of social relations: an event-based perspective of organising’ (https://bit.ly/3kZyPop), Jonathan conducted an ethnographic field study of innovation processes in and around the BLOX building in Copenhagen, an innovation hub for sustainable urban development.
