Academic background

Henny Romijn obtained her PhD in Economics from Tilburg University. Her PhD focused on drivers and processes of technological capability building in economic development, particularly the role of small-scale engineering firms. Since joining TU/e, she has coordinated several international collaboration programmes. The first of these focused on sustainability problems associated with liquid biofuels production and utilization in East Africa and India (funded by the Netherlands Science Organization - NWO). A second NWO-funded project aimed at entrepreneurship development among disadvantaged people in Uganda. Then followed a project funded by EU's EuropeAid in partnership with CARE in which two Somali universities were assisted in setting up the countries' first BSc education programmes in eletrical engineering and renewable energy services: Capacity Building in Electrical Engineering and Renewable Energy at Somali Universities. Currently, Henny is coordinating EU-URBANE: Sustainable business model development for agroecological farming in West-Africa

Before joining TU/e, Henny worked at different well-known development institutions, including the International Development Centre at the University of Oxford, the Institute of Social Studies in the Hague, the Development Research Institute of Tilburg University, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, and the International Labour Organisation. She worked on several enterprise support programs in East Africa and South Asia.  

Henny has published in, and reviewed for journals focused on international development, innovation and energy, such as Environmental Science and Policy, Energy Policy, Research Policy, Energy and Sustainable Development, the Journal of Responsible Innovation, Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Biomass & Bioenergy, World Development, Sustainability, the Journal of Development Studies, Oxford Development Studies, the Journal of Cleaner Production, and the Development Policy Review. She has also authored and contributed to several books.
