Software vulnerabilities are a major enabler for cyberattacks, and are therefore responsible for a sizeable portion of the risk for large organisations in cyberspace. Little research has been done on the dynamics underlying this risk. The goal of this paper is to find how organisations and software vendors can influence the overall risk level as...

In the winter of 2013-2014 the south of the UK (London, Oxford) experienced the heaviest rainfall since 1767. Evidence linking these kind of flood events to climate change has put pressure on the UK flood insurance system that is incapable of properly dealing with this kind of flood events. A proposed re-insurance system, FloodRe, is suggested...

Industrial Symbiosis (IS) in an inter-firm collaboration that delivers both economic and environmental benefits. IS can occur when there are local opportunities for the exchange of an underutilized resource, this means that the exchanged resource is often not a standard product. A non-standard product requires technical expertise and investments...

Negotiations are an everyday phenomena, and yet the process is so complex, ill-structured and even chaotic that analysis becomes challenging. Consequently, we currently lack systematic understanding of the dynamics that govern negotiations concerning multiple issues with multiple participants who behave strategically. The objective of this...

Continuous economic growth, ignoring the incidental recession, is currently still coupled with increases in the use of resources and generation of wastes. The European Commission (EC) is looking for ways to achieve absolute decoupling between economic growth and environmental impacts. A shift from product-based to function-based production and...

The aim of this thesis is to define the specifications of an agent-based model to study the adoption and diffusion of solar PV in the Netherlands, accounting for consumer preferences and social influences. The conceptualization of the model is based on five pillars: agent-based modeling, the theory of planned behavior, choice modeling, dif-...

Developments in the electricity system need to accommodate the pressure of steadily rising demand, advanced technology integration in addition to increasing penetration levels of renewable energy sources (RES) and distributed generation (DG). As such, European energy policy for 2020 is aimed at reducing greenhouses gases by 20%, increasing RES...

This thesis presents an assessment of the economic and environmental effects of Extended Producer Responsibility and No Reuse Policies, by using an agent-based model of Mobile Phone End of Life Networks. Electronic waste of mobile phones is an increasing problem. Governments have reacted by adopting various types of legislation, the most common...

The events of the Arab spring reminds us how individual citizens have the power to overthrow powerful regimes and destabilize complete regions. The dynamics of such bottom-up instigated revolutions seem to be in line with the (Social) Constructivism paradigm. The problem though, is that this paradigm lacks a powerful forecasting method that...

This thesis is concerned with the notion of Darwinism and its application outside of its traditional biological realm, to that of economics. The mechanism of natural selection is based on the co-­? existence of variational, hereditary and selective processes within a system (Cordes 2006). This context-­?independent description of natural...

As goals are set to increase the share of renewable energy production within the province of Overijssel, the Netherlands, the project group Groen Gas Salland is founded and has taken the initiative to explore the opportunities of green gas production through a biogas infrastructure within the region of Salland. Since within the region of Salland...

Agent-based modelling is a popular and suitable tool for exploring the possible states of so-called socio-technical systems. These systems consist of both technical artefacts (the physical infrastructure, e.g. pipelines), and many social artefacts (relevant actors and institutions, e.g. end-users and governments), which are intertwined with each...

In many cases, congestion is a recurrent problem that exists in electricity lines since the demand, in general, steadily increases whereas lines capacity cannot increase in small increments but only in multiple units of line capacity. Congestion in electricity lines hampers the interconnection of local markets because the interconnection line...

Julia Kasmire is writing her PhD dissertation on technology transitions in the Westland greenhouse area. She is looking whether Universal Darwinism (UD) can explain these processes and could lead to could policy recommendations. As a prelude to her research this report focuses on, the less ground braking, technology diffusion in the Westland...

The thesis research was conducted at the section E&I (energy and industry) of the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management. The world around us is complex and this complexity is only expected to increase as technological development spurs on. This complexity arises from social and technical parts that interact with each other and co?evolve...
