    Basisindicatoren HRRF: ECOOM-UGent databank 2010

    Get PDF
    Elk jaar maakt Ecoom-UGent een reeks basisindicatoren aan ter ondersteuning van de beleidsvoering in de organisatie van doctoraatsonderzoek en academische carrières, gebaseerd op de gegevens uit de HRRF-databank (HRRF= Human Resources in Research Flanders). Dit rapport bundelt deze basisindicatoren. In het eerste deel wordt er een algemene toelichting verschaft bij de gehanteerde methodologie, de relevante beslissingsregels bij het aanmaken van bepaalde variabelen en een toelichting bij specifieke berekeningswijzen en terminologie. Het tweede deel bevat tabellen van de analyses op interuniversitair niveau met basisindicatoren omtrent instroom-, populatie- en doctoraatsgegevens van junior onderzoekers die aan de KULeuven, UA, UGent, UHasselt en VUB zijn ingestroomd tussen 1 oktober 1990 en 30 september 2009

    A Short Guide to Setting Up a City Scale Retrofit Program

    Get PDF
    Buildings represent 38.9% of U.S. primary energy use and 38% of all CO2 emissions in the U.S. Though simple, relatively low-cost measures such as insulation, and lighting upgrades can be done in almost every building to reduce energy use and save money on utility bills, current retrofitting program capacity is limited. Most existing programs are either available only to income-eligible individuals or those with the money up-front to do the work. Furthermore, many current retrofitting programs only create low-wage, short-term jobs rather than providing pathways into sustainable careers in construction and green building. Clearly, a new model is needed. This guide by Green For All and the Center on Wisconsin Strategy provides a model for designing and implementing weatherization and retrofitting programs on a citywide scale, with a goal of making such retrofits available to all and realize their potential to address climate change, put people to work, and reduce our energy bills

    The changing UK careers landscape : tidal waves, turbulence and transformation

    Get PDF
    This article explores how the UK careers landscape in each of the four home nations is changing in response to neo-liberal policies. In this context, careers services are increasingly under pressure to demonstrate their added value, impact and returns on investment. As fiscal arrangements tighten and governments state their preferences and priorities for national careers services, differing strategic responses are beginning to emerge. A quasi-market, experimental approach is now the dominant discourse in England, in contrast to differing and complementary arrangements in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The article suggests that insofar as these developments are transforming national careers services, they are also creating significant challenges which require new forms of policy imagery and imagination for high-impact, all-age careers services
