|Toelichting (Engels)||Managers need to take decisions on complex systems. Models can help to assess and communicate current system dynamics and the effects of potential measures. In some fields, such as flood management, there is a high relevance of technical models in decision-making. At the same time, participation of stakeholders in decision making increases - creating a need for stakeholders to interact with technical models. In this study, we will examine these two types of models (technical and conceptual models) and the roles they can play in specific phases of participatory processes. A focus is here on participatory processes embedded into research.|
