My research interests are twofold. The first is the systematic, analytical-empirical study of the policy process. My second research interest is public management in inter-organizational networks, and effects of networking. A large, funded research project ('the implementation of policy innovations in organizations') studies the effects of networks on a.o. agency performance, red tape, and the occupational health and performance of street-level employees in service delivery organizations. Torenvlied is project leader of the evaluation of the Dutch crisis response to the crash of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, commissioned by the Dutch Ministery of Security and Justice. Finally, he studies how new technologies can be developed to solve core questions in above areas.
