I am in charge of a research project on Organizing critical infrastructure services - A case study of waste management (2009-2013) that is financed by the Swedish National Agency for Innovation (Vinnova), http://www.ism.lu.se/oki. The research project approaches waste management as a combination of critical infrastructure and service industry: a critical infrastructure service. The societal purpose is to show that an effective waste management is a value creating process and the research focus is correspondingly on the organizing of waste management as a critical infrastructure service.
