In het onderzoeksprogramma RePolis bestuderen we deze initiatieven vanuit een bestuurskundig oogpunt en onderzoeken we hoe deze bijdragen aan het probleemoplossend vermogen van de samenleving. Daarbij voeren we vergelijkend onderzoek uit tussen diverse domeinen binnen Nederland (zorg, water, energie en wijkontwikkeling) en tussen verschillende landen.

TROPICO is an international research consortium investigating how public administrations are transformed to enhance collaboration in policy design and service delivery, advancing the participation of public, private and societal actors. It will analyse collaboration in and by governments, with a special emphasis on the use of information and communication technologies (ICT), and its consequences from a comparative perspective.
The overall objective of BEGIN is to demonstrate at target sites how cities can improve climate resilience with Blue Green Infrastructure involving stakeholders in a value-based decision- making process to overcome its current implementation barriers.

In this research program various forms of public-private (and societal) partnerships are studied. The focus is on innovative role division between the actors and clever new governance mechanisms (smart governance-practices) that are being developed and employed to improve the functioning of the partnerships.
The program is financed through the Smart Governance Research Fund of the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) and has several co-financing organizations (NSOB, RebelGroup, Twynstra Gudde, ResetManagement and Deltares).
ReSOMA aims at the creation of a Research-Social Platform on Migration & Asylum, seeking to initiate dialogues on research and social innovation with key stakeholders from the local, national and EU level. The project runs from 2018 tot 2020. For more info: see www.resoma.eu.
