Research InterestsThe focus of my thesis lies in the interlinkage between the scientific knowledge of agroecosystems with public management. I am curious about the growing idea that adoption of ’result-oriented’ programmes at the agro-environment interface could lead to better environment protection results, while decreasing the prescriptive pressure for the farmers. In particular, my emphasis is on the concept of ‘result’ and its polysemic meaning in the disciplines of scientific agrological research, environmental conservation and public management. My research explores the different perceptions behind the aforementioned concept and how it can be used for public action. To do so, I investigate how the various users of the “result-oriented” concept are conceiving and developing indicators to monitor the achievement of “results”. During this thesis, I work closely with a multi-disciplinary team of conservation environmentalists, public management researchers, public decision makers and the various stakeholders in the field.
