Hybrid Management in Science-Policy-Practice Relations

Roland Bal, Professor of Health Care Governance, Institute of Health Policy and Management, Erasmus University, Rotterdam.

In my talk I will be mostly concerned with the creation of organizational structures to manage the relations between science, policy and practice in health and healthcare. Building on research done in science advice and implementation science, I will mostly be concerned with analyzing the so-called ‘Academic Workplaces’ for public health that have been functioning in the Netherlands since the mid 2000s. These workplaces have a double goal in that they are aimed at furthering evidence-informed public health policies and practices, and practice- and policy-based public health research. The concept of hybrid management is particularly helpful in analyzing such settings, as it helps pointing at the work that needs to be done in cross-domain relations. I will discuss some of the hybrid management strategies that have been used in the Dutch workplaces, point at their pros and cons in terms of bridging domains, and discuss the conditions under which this can be done successfully.
