Research projects

I am currently working on four main research projects:

1) With my colleagues John Groenewegen and Rolf Kunneke, fromTU Delft, we are preparing a book on the interactions between institutions and technology in network infrastructures. Preliminary results have been published in Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization en 2010.  This project benefited from the support of the Next Generation Infrastructures foundation (NL) over several years.

2) I am working on different projects with the OECD related to the role of institutions in urban water services and in fisheries management. I have delivered reports and papers (some jointly with colleagues from the OECD) on these issues. These research projects are still going on

3) With colleagues from the National University of Singapore (where I have been appointed adjunct professor), I am working on a project for assessing the role of meso-institutions in the governance of several water utilities in East Asia

4) With Sylvia Saes, Vivian Lara (University of Sao Paolo, Brazil), and several other researchers, we are working on a project on the development of plural forms in the agri-food business in Brazil. The theoretical framework and preliminary results of this research has been published in  Managerial and Decision Economics (2013; 2018) and developed with more details with several supportive case studies in a book (Economia das Organizaciões/ Formas Plural e Desafios, Atlas Ed., Sao Paulo, 2014)
