Group model building with stakeholders using Fuzzy Cognitive Mapping

The Environmental Systems Analysis Group provides the possibility for students to do their thesis in collaboration with our group. This is one of many possible thesis subjects. Please feel free to contact Dr Kasper Kok (right) for more information.

This is a simple system dynamics modelling technique that can be used to analyse the behaviour of complex systems, particularly as perceived by stakeholders. Case study to be selected together with your supervisor. See also:
