Research topic

The BIOMOT Project, set in motion by Prof. dr. Wouter de Groot, is the main project that I will be working on during my PhD. It addresses the motivational strength of ecosystem services and alternative ways to express the value of biodiversity. The aim and expected result of BIOMOT are a comprehensive rethinking of what value and motivation actually are for people, and to use that knowledge to improve policy measures for biodiversity.
