The SUSPENSE research program is a joint initiative of three graduate schools (WASS, PE&RC and WIMEK), with daily management conducted by four chair groups (Public Administration and Policy, Environmental Policy, Environmental Systems Analysis, Plant Production Systems) and the Centre for Development Innovation. The programme is coordinated by Dr Otto Hospes together with Greetje Schouten of the Public Administration and Policy group. Universities and research institutes in Indonesia and Thailand are partners in research. The program further collaborates with stakeholders in these countries as well as with global change agents.
