Background: Health systems worldwide struggled to obtain sufficient personal protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators during the COVID-19 pandemic due to global supply chain disruptions. Our study’s aim was to create a proof-of-concept model that would simulate the effects of supply strategies under various scenarios, to ultimately help...

The Netherlands is subject to labour scarcity across a variety of industries. While labour scarcity has occurred in the past, only now the consequences of higher educational attainment have become prevalent in the Netherlands. Due to a shortage of vocational workers and a population that is getting older, circumstances ask for adequate policy...

<br/>Following the climate goals of the Dutch government, a tremendous amount of vRES (variable Renewable Energy Sources) will be built. These energy sources will produce large amounts of power, which must travel great distances on the transmission grid. The Dutch TSO, TenneT, is responsible for the transmission grid's design, construction, and...

Since the conception of the euro, it has often been suggested that the eurozone start a programme of jointly issuing government debt. There are many arguments for these so-called Eurobonds, and temporary issuance of them has already taken place in response to the economic impact of the recent COVID-19 pandemic. However, a permanent Eurobond...

Despite the growing calls to integrate realistic human behavior in sustainability science models, the representative rational agent prevails. This is especially problematic for climate change adaptation that relies on actions at various scales: from governments to individuals. Empirical evidence on individual adaptation to climate-induced...

Climate change will lead to more extreme climate and weather phenomena, and this includes the increased risk and severity of flooding. Flooding is one of the most destructive and common natural hazards globally, and rising sea levels and extreme precipitation mean that many human settlements will be situated in climate-sensitive areas. <br/><br/...

The energy transition makes us less dependent on fossil fuels, but it also brings a new dependence to the table: a dependence on critical metals for green technology. This study used an Exploratory System Dynamics Modelling and Analysis approach to analyse the transition to a circular lithium system towards 2050 and the potential effectiveness...

Trust has been identified in previous research as an important factor in criminals their decision-making when smuggling illegal goods. This research utilizes a case study of the criminal supply chain from South America to the port of Rotterdam, for simulating the relevance of trust in the criminal supply chain using an agent-based model. The...

Illicit supply chain networks are not well mapped. Regulators do not know how goods flow from supplier to retailer. There is uncertainty about whom is involved, where goods originate from, and what quantities are being shipped. Simulation models are effective tools to find measures against the distribution of illicit goods such as personal...

The Akosombo dam in Ghana's Lower Volta River Basin provides essential economic benefits through hydropower generation, flood protection, and irrigation opportunities. However, since its construction was completed in 1965, the livelihood of the riverine communities drastically changed. The seasonal peak and low flows in the river, which provided...

Digital challenger banks in the UK retail banking industry have caused unprecedented Personal Current Account (PCA) market share changes at the cost of traditional banks. This loss in competitive position prompted traditional bank managers to reconsider the way they operate, resulting in the commoditization of digital services till date. Now,...

Crowd management is a crucial element in keeping situations safe. Models can help understand in-event crowd management system more thoroughly, and illustrate potential effects of measures before they have to be implemented in real life. However, applications of crowd models for operational support on in-event crowd management are sparse. Two...

In light of worsening climate change and an increased interest in adapting infrastructure to cope with its effects, model-based decision support has become an essential tool for policy makers. In conditions of deep uncertainty, models may be used to explore a large space of possible system behaviours and so encourage a wider consideration of the...

In 2020, the world was hit by a global pandemic through COVID-19, causing millions of deaths worldwide. The last two years proved that a health-related crisis like COVID-19 strains us as a society and the capacities of health systems worldwide. Severe infections of COVID-19 require higher capacities of hospital beds, ICUs with ventilators and...

Cities are complex socio-technical systems (STSs) under tremendous stress due to climate change. To incorporate resilience into urban plans and move towards evidence-based long-term decision-making, we must unravel complex land-use dynamics and the effect of climate uncertainties on cities. Currently, land-use dynamics are explored through...

Urbanization makes cities more vulnerable in the face of climate change risks. Understanding urban growth under climate change can help planners optimize land allocation and development strategies that are resilient to the impacts of climate change. However, the complexity and uncertainty of climate change hinder the urban...

Good supply strategy that can improve the logistical chain involves taking into account the complexity that a specific good is situated in. This research takes improving the bicycle supply chain within the Netherlands armed Forces as a use case. Aside from the goals for the use case of bicycles, the aim was also to fill the knowledge gap of...

Over the last decades, the world population has grown vastly and the percentage of people living in cities has increased. This process of urbanization has had a lot of implications for both safety management and research on evacuations. Due to this growth in urbanization, more high density gatherings are taking place, potentially resulting in...
