How do cities like Amsterdam deal with climate change, the circular economy and a soaring housing shortage? According to CSDS scientists Dr Michaela Hordijk and Prof. John Grin, these major challenges require more collaboration and a different approach to conducting science. With the Koppelkansen programme, they try to realize and further develop this new approach. Also present: Maarten Claassen, the main driving force behind Koppelkansen. (This episode is in Dutch).
