This paper aims to set up a conceptual framework for studying the second-order guidance problem—that is, designing coordination mechanisms for autonomous actors by means of adequate monitoring and enforcement measures—in a way which is sensible for designers and users of data-sharing infrastructures such as digital market-places. The paper...

Background: To improve knowledge utilization in policymaking, alignment between researchers and policymakers during knowledge production is essential, but difficult to maintain. In three previously reported case studies, we extensively evaluated complex research projects commissioned by policymakers to investigate how alignment is achieved in a...

In this article the theoretical concepts of path-dependency and lock-in are applied to the geometry of the Zeeland delta in the Netherlands. They are used to show that even very small and unpredictable events can cause systems to remain on a path that is practically impossible to leave because the costs of leaving are too high. As a result,...

The EU Project AquaTerra generates knowledge about the river-soil-sediment-groundwater system and delivers scientific information of value for river basin management. In this article, the use and ignorance of scientific knowledge in decision making is explored by a theoretical review. We elaborate on the 'two-communities theory', which explains...

Background, Aims, and Scope. Sediment management in coastal zones is taking place in high complex environments. Present management options do not have a sophisticated way of dealing with the actual complexity of the physical and the social systems and with the unpredictability that is inherent with these systems. Therefore, a new approach in...

Objective - It is generally accepted that a wide range of factors determine the health of a population, many of which are beyond the remit of the Ministry of Health. The aim of intersectoral health policy is to influence these factors. Success depends on a multi-stage process. This paper aims to provide support for the first stage of this...

Proper use information is necessary to do exposure modelling in the scope of regulatory risk assessments. The legal regime under which the regulatory risk assessment is done influences the need for use information. Different legal regimes lead to more or less possibilities for authorities to define the exposure scenario to be assessed and the...

This article reviews the start of the use of targets as a tool in health policy, summarises the fruitful uses and frequently-heard objections, and proposes some conditions for successful health target setting. Targets as tool in health policy are based on the 'management by objectives' approach (1954). The use in health policy was possible due...

The use of health targets as a tool in health policy is receiving more attention. Beyond political will and daring, there awaits the challenge of the fruitful use of health targets. This means an adequate response to the complexity of population health in a target structure that is transparent, controllable, and adaptable in changing...

This article describes the actual situation at the beginning of 1999 with regard to identification and priority setting for health technology assessment (HTA) on a national level in the Netherlands. For this purpose the literature on HTA published in 1980-1998, mainly national, was thoroughly reviewed. Many policy documents and other reports...

Due to epidemiological transitions in population health both an increase in life expectancy and in chronic morbidity and disability have been observed in many countries. Consequently the tension between 'living longer' on the one hand and the 'quality of life' on the other has become a central health policy problem. The introduction of the...

Excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) is an experimental treatment to correct myopia (short-sightedness) that is diffusing into use without convincing evidence of safety and efficacy. It has been claimed that PRK may render conventional methods of correcting myopia, such as wearing glasses or contact lenses, obsolete. Since about 25%...
