In this report we present a systematic analysis of the societal impact of the research programme Next Generation Infrastructures.
This is a ~50% government funded research programme that runs from 2004-2014. The aim of our study is twofold. The first aim of this study is to identify the contributions of the research programme to practitioners of infrastructures in the Netherlands. The second aim is to get an insight into the mechanisms through which the research programme has had impact. Based on these insights, NG Infra programme management can enhance the programme activities concerning stakeholder involvement and societal impact.
