Prosjektets hovedmål er å utvikle og profesjonalisere mentorrollen og gode mentormodeller for entreprenøriell læring i høyere utdanning. Prosjektet søker å finne frem til stilarter innen mentorskap som støtter og fremmer entreprenøriell læring hos studenter i høyere utdanning og opp til PhD-nivå.
Causation is central to our understanding of human health and illness. Medical explanation, prediction and intervention are all premised on the reality of causation. CauseHealth bring together philosophers, medical researchers and practitioners to address a major challenge: how to understand causation in health sciences.
Causation is central to our understanding of how matter, life, minds and society works. This collaborative and interdisciplinary project brings together academics from a range of backgrounds to consider the general theory of causation in relation to their own specialisms.
This proposal aims to create a foundation for sustainable production of Atlantic salmon and cod, through dissecting the genetic basis of observed phenotypic variation, and gaining a deep understanding of how the genomes are influenced by artificial selection and the environment.
SMAM will be an integrated empirical modeling framework to estimate and simulate the effects of policy, economic and resource factors on the supply, demand, price and global trade of salmon. Based on this, we will also be able to predict future profitability levels of the salmon farming industry, based on current production practice.
The objective is to show how rural poor depend on environmental incomes and if/how expected climate change could erode the natural assets. We use data from more than 7000 households in 24 developing countries to study: (i) how environmental incomes determine vulnerability; and (ii) how climate change could affect the livelihoods and vulnerability in the future.
The project examines the role of non-tariff barriers and sanitary and phytosanitary regulations for international agricultural and food trade. The project focuses especially on Norwegian seafood exports and Norway’s imports of agricultural goods, particularly from developing countries.
Women in Southern Ethiopia traditionally have a weak position, and have been considered the property of men. Joint land certificates to husbands and wives have been issued since 2005, based on new land laws that were enacted from 2004. The step from being mere property to becoming equal owner can therefore be long and tough.
Norske fiskerier regnes som en lukket og strengt regulert sektor. Tildeling kobles til ulike teknologiske tilpasninger. De teknologiske tilpasningene generer ulike nivåer av (in-)effektivitet. Prosjektet analyserer teknisk effektivitet innen dagens forvaltningsregime.
For å lykkes i det europeiske markedet trenger fiskeri- og oppdrettsnæringen detaljert informasjon om forbrukernes preferanser for ulike egenskaper til fisken. Prosjektet kartlegger derfor disse preferansene, og undersøker ulike strategier som marin sektor kan bruke for å øke verdien på fisk solgt i det europeiske markedet.
In theory, emissions trading provides cost-effective stimuli for reducing emissions by putting a price on greenhouse gas emissions. However, its effectiveness is heavily conditioned by design factors. This project investigates the factors influencing the design and international diffusion of emissions trading in some major emitting jurisdiction.
The aim of this project is to develop a detailed stochastic, numerical model of the energy industry that covers all countries in Europe that can be used for policy analyses when agents make decisions under uncertainty.
A central policy question is to what extent climate change should be mitigated by abating greenhouse gas emissions. Conversely, how much damage from climatic change should be accepted? To guide this decision, economists use integrated assessment models (IAMs) of climate change. This project will aim to improve current IAMs.
The project is focused on developing a better understanding of what motivate choices with environmental consequences. Institutionally oriented models assume that people may accept some personal sacrifices to attain solutions that are better for the group. We want to study how the institutional context influences individual motivations.
