A Study on Deterministic Convergence and Asymmetric Adjustment from the Perspective of Structural Change

Kun Wang
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations - China, Japan, and South Korea - is committed to the establishment of the East Asian Economic Community in 2020. In this context, this paper examines the output convergence of the 12 countries of the East Asian Economic Community relative to China by means of smooth structural changes and the non-linear adjustment of a unit root test, and then estimates the asymmetric convergence rate. The empirical results show that,...

Community electricity and storage central management for multi-dwelling developments: an analysis of operating options

Elizabeth Tomc & Anthony M Vassallo
A combination of PV, storage and energy management in multi-dwelling developments can be very effective in utilising load diversity and reducing grid dependence. Sharing PV and electricity storage resources within a community renewable energy network (CREN) via an energy management system (EMS) shifts the peak individual loads to times that the grid considers off-peak periods - i.e. night time – so managed off-peak charging and a retail plan with the lowest off-peak pricing affords the...

Assessment for Project-Based Courses

James R. Fugate
A project-based course is where students engage in a series of projects, which help lead students to a defined level of skill as specified in the course goals. Unlike a traditional lecture course where students are given examinations to assess the level of student knowledge and understanding, a project-based course may not include any formal examination. The assessment of student progress is often based on the quality of course projects. For this research, students in...

Toward Smart City Business Models

Sari Perätalo & Petri Ahokangas
This paper discusses a business model concept in a public smart city context. To date, there is no unified understanding of how smart cities create value for their stakeholders. This study aims to contribute to the research by investigating the content and dynamics of a business model approach for smart cities.

Business Models of Internet Companies and Types of Goods Offered

Tymoteusz Doligalski

Classifying the Business Model from a Strategic and Innovation Perspective

Julio E Cuc & Aleksandr Miina
This study explores the relationship between business model, innovation, and strategy. Through a systematic literature review and deductive analysis, it classifies business models according to the degree of innovation, and strategic focus, hence providing a framework to evaluate and improve business models. The research outline suggests a practical application.

Business Model and Non-Financial Key Performance Indicator Disclosure

Laura Bini, Lorenzo Simoni, Francesco Dainelli & Francesco Giunta
Business model disclosure is proposed as a communication tool for companies to increase the effectiveness of non-financial key performance indicator (NFKPI) disclosure. First, business model enables the identification of indicators that are aligned with strategic objectives. Moreover, it acts as an integrated framework, showing how different capitals are combined to create value.

PBL and mixed-background groups on Master’s programmes

Mie Engen, Mia Arp Fallov, Rune Hagel Skaarup Jensen, Julie Borup Jensen & Ole Ravn
This article presents the main findings of an applied research project, which studied student experiences of the challenges and opportunities of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) in two master programmes (MPs) at Aalborg University (AAU) characterised by diverse student groups, who bring different educational backgrounds, skills and experiences to the table. Research shows that PBL holds a potential for integrating and promoting learning outcomes for diverse student population, but also that heterogeneity can have negative influence on...

Allocation of the Right to Tax Income from Digital Intermediary Platforms – Challenges and Possibilities for Taxation in the Jurisdiction of the User

Louise Fjord Kjærsgaard & Peter Koerver Schmidt
The authors analyse the current (lack of) possibilities for userjurisdictions to tax the value generated by the increased use of digital intermediary platforms. Focus is on analysing the possibilities for userjurisdictions to tax the remuneration received by a foreign enterprise owning a digital intermediary platform and on disucussing whether the users’ provision of personal data in exchange for access to the platform could be considered a barter transaction for tax purposes in the userjurisdiction. Among...

Viden, virkelighed og curriculum.

Jørn Bjerre
Within sociology „Social Realism“ refers to a theoretical position based on the assumption that social reality is non-reducible to the experience of an individual. Within pedagogical sociology, curriculum theory and educational theory have used this theoretical position in their examination of what knowledge is, and why certain forms of knowledge have become, in the Michael Young’s term, powerful knowledge. This article presents Young’s notion of powerful knowledge, critically discussing its implicit assumption about the relation...

Studying the Aesthetics of Images and Advertising Films

Anders Bonde & Birger Larsen
The notion, that aesthetic objects are not only things but also does something to those who engage with them, is consistent among various researchers in the arts and humanities; and also that this is not primarily a matter of interpretative symbolic meaning in the fields of semiotics and hermeneutics, but may rather be associated with sense perception, such as arousal, vigilance, fascination and appraisal (Marković 2012). In this position paper, we sketch out a conceptual...

Disturbing the Metaphor

Beate Schirrmacher
In this article, I want to discuss the way metaphors take form as diegetic actions in Elfriede Jelinek’s The Piano Teacher (1983) and Günter Grass’s Too Far Afield (1995). In these texts, the reader must literally picture what metaphorical language usually only conceptually refers to. Both authors confront their readers with disturbing actions that are felt to be significant in some way; they resist straightforward interpretation and rather provoke affective reactions. This deliberate disturbance of...

Dissolving Europe?

Birgit Eriksson
When the performance Living Dead premiered in Denmark in 2016, its reception was characterized by an equal amount of praise and unease. Written and directed by Christian Lollike, Living Dead dealt with the increasing number of refugees coming to Europe from Africa and the Middle East. Controversially, it was a “horror performance” focusing on the fear, anxiety, and potential dissolution of Europe. The article examines the agency of the performance. How does it engage our...
