Hens Runhaar is an Extraordinary Professor of Management of biodiversity and agricultural landscapes. His research focuses on how farmers and other companies in agri-food chains can be stimulated to minimise negative ecological impacts and maximise their contribution to biodiversity and landscape quality. Central themes in his research include the assessment of governance arrangements for nature conservation by farmers; the role of the framing of biodiversity objectives for their governance; and the organisation of knowledge production for 'nature-inclusive' farming.
