Dr. Kris R.D. Lulofs (1962) is the Manager of the Twente Water Centre (TWC – www.utwente.nl/water/) which is unique in bringing together the natural and social sciences expertise from various groups located within the University, and he is Senior Research Associate at the Twente Centre for Studies in Technology and Sustainable Development (CSTM).

He furthermore is affiliated to the Watergovernancecentre in The Hague, a network organization in which scholars and practitioners address a wide variety of water-issues that touch upon governance (www.watergovernancecentre.nl). In this context he, inter alia, initiates governance improvements trajectories for national and regional water authorities. He led the governance track in the Ecoshape-Building with Nature research and innovation program; in this program natural sciences, technology and social sciences are successfully merged in the continuum between nature, engineering and society. This program on new paradigm in water related infrastructure reflects a showcase of ‘technology in its context’ (www.ecoshape.nl).

He teaches in undergraduate and postgraduate courses and offers training programs on topics such as policy analysis, policy evaluation and interactive governance to practitioners, among others he is responsible for a post graduate program for high potential employees of Water authorities (www.utwente.nl/mb/bpo/leergangen/bbw/).

As senior he was researcher and project leader of numerous externally funded projects, including projects funded by EU research frameworks, international and national knowledge institutes, the Dutch national science foundation, ministries, provinces and water boards. Kris specializes in policy strategies, instrumentation and governance, especially in the fields of water management, climate change and corporate social responsibility. He has published and (co-)edited several books and published more than hundred articles, book chapters and reports. Kris has been secretary of the Dutch Political Science Association and is a senior member of the Netherlands Institute of Government (NIG) and the Institute for Innovation and Governance Studies (IGS).
