In the Annual Report 2014 of the Louis Bolk Instituut the central theme is the adaptation model. Executice director Jan Willem Erisman: "All our projects are aimed at developing conceptual and practical knowledge and solutions to promote adaptive systems. Both for agriculture and health care, I see two ways to get there. The most effective route is conversion: radically reduce dependence on external inputs, increase resilience, and build on from there. However, a more gradual change is definitely also an option. We support both approaches with knowledge and advice."
