During a symposium on learning in communities, the first copy of a new book on Evolutionary Governance Theory was presented to Prof. dr. Kropff, rector magnificus of Wageningen University and Research centre. This book puts forward a novel framework for furthering our understanding of the embedding of different forms of knowledge in governance and the rapidly changing position of science in society. Evolutionary Governance Theory (EGT) is helpful for analyzing the production, enactment and application of knowledge and the various roles of social learning in these processes. The book presents empirical studies and theoretical reflections that are partly based on transdisciplinary research projects, such as those carried out in the Science Shop of Wageningen UR.
