1. Innovative Partnerships; this part of the research is aimed at more loosely coupled network-like-partnerships between public and private actors in which innovative technologies and/or ways of doing are developed.
  2. Implementation of DBFMO projects; this part of the research is directed at the implementation of DMFO projects and how contractual (financial) incentives influence that implementation, but it also studies how partners deal with changes in the implementation phase.
  3. Societal self organization and partnerships; this part of the research looks at new forms of self-organization (especially healthy cooperatives) and how they collaborate with private and public actors. Moreover it focuses on which innovative governance strategies and arrangements are developed to facilitate this cooperation and solve the institutional obstacles that emerge.
