My research is focused on open data. With my research I want to achieve that open data sharing and use will become the standard instead of the exception. It is my dream that more value will be created through open data.

My mission for the next decade is to realise a breakthrough in open data research by developing open data theory for designing infrastructures and institutional arrangements that incentivize open data sharing and use

  • by different types of actors (e.g. governmental organizations, researchers, companies, citizens)
  • from different domains (e.g. different scientific disciplines and different industries).

l teach the course Governance Specialisatie (I en C) - TB321IA-T - Bachelor Technische Bestuurskunde. (since 2018)

Anneke has been teaching in the following courses at Delft University of Technology since 2012:
