Public-Private Partnerships


Andreas’ main research interests are in the area of infrastructure (asset) management and he has developed this line of research at the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Twente. In his research Andreas focuses on the interplay of the social, technical and environmental aspects in providing and managing modern infrastructure assets and aims at developing new methods and models for optimized decision making throughout the lifecycle of infrastructure assets. His research adopts an integrative approach which brings together ideas from technical, organizational and social science to better understand the dynamic and complex character of infrastructure provision and management. Topics that Andreas addresses within this line of research include:  

  • maintenance management,
