Does information on the interdependence of climate adaptation measures stimulate collaboration? A case study analysis
Vos, Claire C. ; Wal, Merel M. van der; Opdam, Paul F.M. ; Coninx, Ingrid ; Dewulf, Art R.P.J. ; Steingröver, Eveliene G. ; Stremke, Sven - \ 2018

Adaptation measures - Climate adaptation - Collaboration - Landscape planning - Participative planning - Stakeholders
A key issue in implementing adaptation strategies at the landscape level is that landowners take measures on their land collectively. We explored the role of information in collective decision-making in a landscape planning process in the Baakse Beek region, the Netherlands. Information was provided on (a) the degree to which measures contribute to multiple purposes, (b) whether they are beneficial to stakeholders representing different sectors of land use, and (c) the need for landscape-level implementation of adaptation measures. Our analysis suggests that the negotiation process resulted in collective decisions for more collaborative adaptation measures than could be expected from individual preferences previous to the planning session. Based on the results, it is plausible that the provided information enhanced integrative agreements by leading stakeholders to realize that they were mutually interdependent, both in acquiring individual benefits as well as in implementing the measures at the landscape level. Our findings are significant in the context of the emerging insight that targeted information provision for climate adaptation of landscapes can support collaboration between the relevant stakeholders.
Supply chain collaboration in industrial symbiosis networks
Herczeg, Gábor ; Akkerman, Renzo ; Hauschild, Michael Zwicky - \ 2018

Circular economy - Collaboration - Industrial symbiosis - Resource efficiency - Supply chain - Sustainability
A strategy supporting the development towards a circular economy is industrial symbiosis (IS). It is a form of collaborative supply chain management aiming to make industry more sustainable and achieve collective benefits based on utilization of waste, by-products, and excess utilities between economically independent industries. Based on an extensive analysis of published studies on existing IS collaborations and interviews with central stakeholders of a comprehensive IS, this paper investigates IS from a supply chain collaboration perspective. A theoretical framework is built and used to discuss how industrial symbiosis pursues sustainability and to identify the main collaboration aspects and performance impacts. This framework is then used in the analysis of selected published cases. Based on this, we derive propositions on the organizational and operational requirements for collaboration in the context of IS networks, related to the supply chain integration and coordination practices. As IS has only received little attention in the operations and supply chain management community, our propositions directly lead to future research directions. Furthermore, the analysis in this paper provides directions to increase the feasibility and resource efficiency of IS networks and can hence be used by stakeholders involved in these networks.
Learning and innovation in hybrid organizations : Strategic and organizational insights
Boccardelli, Paolo ; Annosi, Maria Carmela ; Brunetta, Federica ; Magnusson, Mats - \ 2017

Bricolage - Collaboration - Emergence - Exchange - Experimentation - Networks - Organizational change - Organizational forms - Technological management
Reflecting the emergence of new organizational forms and hybrid organizations, this edited collection explores the processes of exchange, collaboration and technological management that have changed organizational structures. By investigating the impact that inter-organizational collaboration can have on the production and implementation of ideas within new firms, this study contributes to the growing field of innovation and responds to the need for a greater understanding of renewed processes. The authors argue that collaborations need to go beyond existing practices to create emerging paths such as bricolage, experimentation, effectuation and learning. Drawing together a diverse body of literature on the internal dynamics that drive organizational change, Learning and Innovation in Hybrid Organizations presents multiple perspectives on combining organizational flexibility with learning and innovation, and provides implications for future practice.

Collaboration - Networks - Social factors - Trust - Value chain

Vertical chain collaboration is a strategy for customers' value creation. However, Dutch fishermen are hardly participating in integrated value chains. While supply chain literature describes factors that contribute to successful chain partnerships, scarce research has been done on the dynamics of the sociocultural context for chain collaboration. In 10 semi-structured interviews, representatives of supply chain parties were asked for their perceptions on chain collaboration, trust, and the role of the local community. The interviews were directed at obtaining so-called 'tacit' knowledge, the non-spoken codified truths of social networks. Without generalizing, this research provides benchmarks to monitor how the different domains, laid out in this study, impact chain collaboration: community values, network participation and company competences. An overview is given of socio-economic factors blocking and enhancing chain collaboration at company and community level. Factors such as the strong bonding of family with business in tightly knit networks, a high level of social control, entrepreneurial autonomy, and loyalty as community norm hamper collaboration within the supply chain.Respondents' discourse demonstrates that cultural codes and identity form the very core of the entrepreneur, driving rather than 'embedding' economic behavior. Kinship, religion and peer pressure determine 'windows on the world' when engaging in chain collaboration. Consequently, any analysis of economics that does not integrate sociological and psychological methodology is flawed from the outset.

Decades of population genetic research reveal the need for harmonization of molecular markers : The grey wolf Canis lupus as a case study

Collaboration - Genetic monitoring - Recommendations - Reference collection - Transnational research

Following protection measures implemented since the 1970s, large carnivores are currently increasing in number and returning to areas from which they were absent for decades or even centuries. Monitoring programmes for these species rely extensively on non-invasive sampling and genotyping. However, attempts to connect results of such studies at larger spatial or temporal scales often suffer from the incompatibility of genetic markers implemented by researchers in different laboratories. This is particularly critical for long-distance dispersers, revealing the need for harmonized monitoring schemes that would enable the understanding of gene flow and dispersal dynamics. Based on a review of genetic studies on grey wolves Canis lupus from Europe, we provide an overview of the genetic markers currently in use, and identify opportunities and hurdles for studies based on continent-scale datasets. Our results highlight an urgent need for harmonization of methods to enable transnational research based on data that have already been collected, and to allow these data to be linked to material collected in the future. We suggest timely standardization of newly developed genotyping approaches, and propose that action is directed towards the establishment of shared single nucleotide polymorphism panels, next-generation sequencing of microsatellites, a common reference sample collection and an online database for data exchange. Enhanced cooperation among genetic researchers dealing with large carnivores in consortia would facilitate streamlining of methods, their faster and wider adoption, and production of results at the large spatial scales that ultimately matter for the conservation of these charismatic species.

Collaboration - Logistics network design - Perishables - Virtualisation

Today most flowers physically pass through the Dutch auction houses on their fixed routes from growers located all over the world to European customers. Physical presence is necessary to allow for inspection, quality control and break-bulk activities. Several developments, such as increased internationalization and virtualization, stimulate the sector to develop an efficient European hub distribution network, in which cut flowers, plants and other products are delivered to detail, retail and e-tail (i.e. webshop) customers using different logistics concepts. The DaVinc3i project has had the objective to strengthen the international leading competitive position of the Dutch horticulture sector in a global, virtualized trade network by researching the opportunities for new logistics coordination, consolidation and collaboration concepts in extended international trade park networks. In the last years over 30 case studies with business partners have been conducted within the DaVinc3i project. In this chapter we highlight the main research advances and lessons learned when moving towards collaborative responsive logistics network designs for perishables, illustrated with five case studies.
