The rise of citizen science has drawn policymakers' attention. With a shift towards participatory and transparent governance, linking policies to citizen science could contribute to create the evidence base and social acceptance for policy-making, and further counter-play populism and post-truth politics. This study aims to gain empirical...

With the increasing amounts of data generated from various sources, companies are now aware of the data-driven applications more than ever. In the built environment, building or infrastructural projects are handed over as end-product and these projects are complex. Thus, this data disturbance requires multiple ways of project management...

The motive for this research is to contribute to the development of a resilient city, specifically to the transition to a sustainable car system. Road removal or road reallocation can be considered as a means to induce reduced demand for car mobility. Yet, the implementation of these measures can count on resistance. This resistance is...

High temperature aquifer thermal energy storage (HT-ATES) can potentially solve the mismatch between heat supply and demand. It can provide a large scale seasonal heat storage solution. Thereby it enables an increase in full load hours of the base heat source, which can benefit project performance on both costs and emissions. However, the...

Many firms are occupied with determining the optimal replacement time of machinery. Machine replacement is a complex investment decision that requires the estimation of future cash flows and other parameters. The non-deterministic character of future cash flows has given rise to stochastic models, that take into account this uncertainty. This...

A large number of the project organisations of large infrastructure construction projects have difficulties coping with the current static and dynamic project complexities. Researches, however, suggest that adding extra complexities to the project could create synergies and therefore new solutions. An increase in project complexity could...

Reuse of building material is an integral part of making the product circular. However, there is lack of working frameworks and practical tools which can quantify the feasibility of reuse over other choices such as virgin material use or recycling for that matter. Therefore, this research focuses on the development of such a working framework...

Many infrastructure projects cope with a cost overrun and time delay due to the lack of effective design change management in case of design changes. To implement these design changes, an effective change process is necessary. This process guides the project team in identifying, documenting, evaluating and managing design change. With this...
