Title in English: Annual Report 2015 Louis Bolk Institute: A revolutionary approach

Abstract / summary in English:

In the Annual Report 2015 of the Louis Bolk Instituut the central theme is A revolutionary approach. Executice director Jan Willem Erisman: "In 2015 the growing impact of our Institute was most apparent within the areas of Biodiversity and Health. After years of investing in these themes, our  work in these areas is receiving more and more recognition, and our systems approach is now being adopted in a range of new projects.For example, there is a growing interest in our conceptual framework for integrating biodiversity into farming systems. Furthermore, the concept of Positive Health, which defines health as the ability to adapt and self-manage, has been adopted as a key policy innovation within Dutch health care."
