1 Challenge the future Delft University of Technology Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management

2 2 Titel van de presentatie | xx TPM’s Mission The Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management intends to make a significant contribution to sustainable solutions to complex social problems through internationally oriented education and research. TPM is doing so by analyzing the structure and operation of technical multi-actor systems and by developing intervention strategies, practices and instruments for designing and improving systems of this kind. Technology, Policy and Management

3 3 Titel van de presentatie | xx Typical TPM research issues

4 4 Titel van de presentatie | xx Typical TPM-problems (1) How are we tackling the traffic congestion issue in the Netherlands? By carpooling, providing route information, toll barriers, road pricing, peak period driving permits, or by automating passenger and freight transport and sensors in the transport infrastructure? Technology, Policy and Management

5 5 Titel van de presentatie | xx Typical TPM-problems (2) How can we prevent electricity liberalization leading to widespread power failures? Is there a relationship between the liberalization and power failures elsewhere in the world? What technological solutions and institutional arrangements are worth recommending? Technology, Policy and Management

6 6 Titel van de presentatie | xx Typical TPM-problems (3) How can air traffic at Schiphol expand within publicly determined noise limits? By measuring noise differently, better sound insulation, steeper takeoff and landing angles or smarter air traffic control? Technology, Policy and Management

7 7 Titel van de presentatie | xx Typical TPM-problems (4) How do we deal with water management in the Netherlands? A combination of higher river dikes, sacrificing polders as storage areas, more drinking water reservoirs and cooling towers for our power stations? By negotiating with countries upstream, or mainly through technical innovations? Technology, Policy and Management

8 8 Titel van de presentatie | xx Typical TPM-problems (5) How can we use our natural gas reserves sustainably? Removing and storing carbon dioxide under- ground, mixing biogas or hydrogen in the natural gas network? Does our fine- grained natural gas network help us move to a hydrogen economy more quickly, or is the dialectics of progress at work? Technology, Policy and Management

9 9 Titel van de presentatie | xx Typical TPM-problems (6) How can we actualize spatial policy at different levels of aggregation? By writing memoranda and formulating zoning plans? By mobilizing sustainable stake- holders? By co-production of policy? By public-private co- operation? Or by a more syste- matic and design-oriented approach to the decision- making process? Technology, Policy and Management

10 10 Titel van de presentatie | xx Typical TPM-problems (7) How can we ensure the continuity of tele- communication services? Are technological innovations, such as third generation mobile tele- communication, the solution? Should we build a mobile emergency network? Do we need a more strict telecom regulator? What is the role of government and what can market players solve themselves? Technology, Policy and Management

11 11 Titel van de presentatie | xx Typical TPM-problems (8) How can organizations seize the strategic opportunities of ICT? What are the consequences for organizations of offering electronic services? What technology is needed and what organizational adjustments have to be made? And how can business processes be improved by telematics? Technology, Policy and Management

12 12 Titel van de presentatie | xx Typical TPM problems occur in ‘multi-actor systems’ Multi-actor systems: Require attention to the physical system Require attention to the behaviour of actors in the decision- making process Require attention to the underlying interaction: the interference between actor behaviour and physical system raises questions about steering and (process) management Technology, Policy and Management

13 13 Titel van de presentatie | xx The object of TPM (1) Actor behaviour Actor behaviour renders the operation of multi-actor systems complex and dynamic: Actors (government authorities, businesses, organized interest groups, consumers, citizens, etc.) use their strategies The aggregate of strategies leads to an unpredictable decision-making process and to unintended effects Technology, Policy and Management

14 14 Titel van de presentatie | xx The object of TPM (2) The physical system The physical system is complex and dynamic: It is not usually designed as one single system Unpredictable behaviour by non-linearities, unforeseeable reactions, indirect information about the status of components Nevertheless society demands high quality performance Technology, Policy and Management

15 15 Titel van de presentatie | xx The TPM perspective System perspective Analysis of structure and behaviour of physical systems Focus on interactions between components Actor perspective Analysis of structure and network of actors Analysis of underlying relationships and interactions: the process of decision making Technology, Policy and Management

16 16 Titel van de presentatie | xx Action perspective TPM analyzes, designs and develops tools, concepts, models, strategies, practices of action and arrangements which can be used for intervention in, and management and innovation of multi-actor systems. Technology, Policy and Management
