Database of European Education Provision

The PROCEDIN Resource Bank, developed by the consortium partners, is set to become a vital source of support and guidance for individuals and organisations interested in promoting circular economy and green mobility. 

The growth of procurement and attracting future leaders can be enhanced through the visibility of procurement education. With the goal to map procurement education, PROCEDIN surveyed universities across Europe. The project partners compiled data on European universities that provide master’s or bachelor’s level education in procurement, sustainability, and entrepreneurship. In the present database, there are 114 different universities from 27 different countries, which together offer 1679 courses. In order to make sure that the courses are updated and kept current, PROCEDIN will publish an online survey where respondents can recommend both new courses that should be added to the database and revisions to the database.

AustriaUniversity of ViennaSustainabilityGeography of Innovation and Sustainability TransformationsMScGrand societal challenges such as climate change, environmental degradation and socio-economic inequalities require urgent action. It is becoming clear that a sole economic and technology-driven approach to innovation is insufficient to meet these challenges. What is needed are holistic visions and strategies that seek a far-reaching transformation of production and consumption systems as well as socio-ecological relations. Actors from all sectors of society are needed to drive complex innovation-exnovation in areas that are highly unsustainable and shape novel solutions that help to tackle grand societal challenges. The course will focus on options for what challenge-oriented innovation systems might look like in different spatial settings and who should drive, guide and intermediate those new systems. Building on theoretical-conceptual approaches and empirical examples from the literature of the Geography of Innovation and Sustainability Transitions, small groups of students will develop their own ideas for challenge-oriented innovation systems in different spatial contexts. Core questions to be addressed in the course include amongst others (1) the identification and framing of place-based needs and problems; (2) the factors and processes that underpin the construction of challenge-oriented innovation systems and the measurement of their performance; (3) the significance of structure-agency dynamics in regional transformative change processes; and (4) the policy approaches that are vital to accelerate regional sustainability transitions.English
AustriaUniversity of ViennaSustainabilityInequality and SustainabilityMScEfforts to shift human activities onto a sustainable trajectory are profoundly challenged by global inequalities of income, wealth, and power. Unsustainable practices, and the local and global challenge they cause, impose disproportionately heavy burdens on the least advantaged. Any serious effort to achieve sustainability must address inequality. In this course we will examine aspects of the entanglement of global inequalities with efforts to achieve sustainability. A distinguishing feature of the course is its critical stance toward the material we will study, which means that we will not only understand course readings on their own terms but will also compare and evaluate contrasting perspectives, independently evaluate claims with other evidence and, at times, try to stand apart from the entire discussion and ask, for example, about the limitations of science and technology as pathways to a sustainable future. Course readings balance analytic explanation with normative evaluation, historical trends with contemporary concerns, global forces with local circumstances, structural conditions with human experiences, quantitative measures with qualitative understanding, continuities with disruptions, scholarly literature with writings intended for the educated general public. By reading and discussing such diverse literature we will develop an integrative understanding of the nature and dimensions of the challenge of attaining sustainability in the current climate of global inequality, built upon a foundation of empirical evidence and theoretical explanation, and directed toward forming strategies for accomplishing transitions toward sustainability.English

AustriaUniversity of ViennaInnovation Innovation, cognition and knowledge generationBScHow is new knowledge created (in organizations, science, etc.)? What is innovation? How are creativity and innovation related? How is the world changing through disruptive innovation, digital technologies, the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, etc.? How do we deal with a radically changing world characterized by complexity, uncertainty, unpredictability, and ambiguity (“VUCA world”)? What answers do we find to such dynamics? How do we create new meanings and interpretive frameworks in this context? How must organizations be designed to produce radical/disruptive and sustainable innovation that is not just extrapolations from the past, but future-driven? What/how can we learn from future potentials? This interdisciplinary course addresses the question of the emergence of (radically) new knowledge and the generation and design of innovation. This lecture provides the theoretical content, while in the parallel course “Innovation Lab: From Idea to Prototype” these theoretical concepts are implemented in practical innovation and knowledge projects up to prototypes in a workshop/studio/lab. Theoretical foundations (innovation theory, epistemological, scientific and cognitive science foundations, organizational theory, etc.), and practical tools will be presented, ranging from idea generation and creativity processes, structuring of knowledge, deep observation, potential identification, “learning from the future”, “listening to what wants to emerge”, to prototyping, design, presentation of an innovation and basics of didactics of knowledge transfer and collaborative knowledge generation.English

AustriaUniversity of ViennaInnovationInnovation Lab: from idea to prototypeBScThis happens in the format of an innovation lab, in which an innovation prototype is developed in different workshop settings; The innovation process follows the approach of emergent innovation (“Learning from the future as it emerges” | Theory-U) and extends from brainstorming, research and observation processes, identification of future potential, prototyping and selected methods of design thinking to development and presentation of a first prototype. In this course, state-of-the-art innovation and knowledge generation concepts and technologies are practically applied in concrete settings (e.g. explicitly making implicit assumptions, understanding perception and thought patterns, theory-u/presencing, various modes of profound and qualitative/ ethnographic observation, interviews, deep knowing, exploring potential, prototyping, etc.). Students work (individually and in innovation teams) autonomously under the guidance of the course leader along a predefined innovation process on an innovation project; In this way they learn the (theoretical [VO] and) practical skills and mindsets to carry out their own future-driven innovation project. The course leader accompanies the students and innovation teams as a coach/facilitator through this innovation process.English
AustriaUniversity of ViennaInnovationDesigning Innovation: Designing knowledge-, innovation and learning processesThe reactive solving of problems or the optimization of knowledge are no longer sufficient in a highly complex (“VUCA”) world like the one we live in today. Rather, it is a matter of “thinking from the future” to generate new knowledge and new approaches; “listening and understanding what wants to emerge”; in order to develop approaches and concepts that actively shape and sustainably change this future. The extension curriculum (EC) “Knowledge Creation: How new knowledge and innovation emerge” and the course “Designing Innovation” deal with the question of the emergence of (radically) new knowledge and the generation and design of innovation. The lecture offers the theoretical contents, while in the VU “Designing Innovation” and the SE “Knowledge Atellier”, which belong to the EC, these theoretical concepts are implemented in practical innovation and knowledge projects up to prototypes in a workshop/studio. Theoretical basics and practical tools are developed, which range from idea generation, structuring of knowledge, precise observation, identification of potential, “learning from the future”, “listening to what comes up”, prototyping, design, presentation of an innovation and basics of didactics of knowledge transfer and collaborative knowledge generation. In this EC/VU, state-of-the-art innovation and knowledge generation concepts and technologies (and their theoretical background) are presented and practically applied in concrete settings (e.g. explicitly making implicit assumptions, understanding patterns of perception and thought, theory-U/presencing, different modes of profound and qualitative/ethnographic observation, interviews, deep knowing, exploring potentials, prototyping, etc.). These processes affect both the individual and the collective level. This EC offers sufficient space for reflection on your projects and students’ questions.English

AustriaUniversity of ViennaInnovationSeminar in Human Geography: Innovation, Structural Change and Regional PoliciesMScInnovation is acknowledged as a driving force for socio-economic development on the regional level, as is reflected in policy approaches such as “smart specialization”. Innovation contributes to structural change, but shaping processes and directions of structural change in regions calls for regional policies adapted to the context of each region. Despite decades of regional policy across Europe, many questions about but how such policies can be effectively designed and implemented remain open for debate. The course familiarizes students with some of the most relevant approaches in innovation studies and regional policy, introduces the political and economic context for regional development in Europe, and invites students to analyze and discuss political strategies. Students will develop a regional innovation strategy for a case study region, taking into account the concrete causes and consequences of structural change in the region.English

AustriaUniversity of ViennaInnovationStrategic InnovationMScWikipedia has outcompeted the Encyclopedia Britannica. Companies such as the Valve or Zappos do away with their traditional structure and successfully compete in fierce markets. Over the past decade, novel forms of organizing (NFOs) have disrupted traditional businesses and continue to challenge managers’ views on the viability of their strategies and the ways of re-structuring their own companies to cater to the demands of the millennial workforce. This class – blending insights from a decade’s research program with rich case-based illustrations – helps you master the following questions: what are novel forms of organizing at all? Why and how do they matter to strategists? Which type of employee wants to work inside an NFO and why? When and why should managers want to design one? What works (well)? Is flatter always better? How should I customize a flat structure to suit my company? What does it take to work team-based? And what really stands behind agility, DAOs, Holacracy, Scrum, WOC? The goal is for students to develop a research-based understanding of why and how (novel) forms of organizing matter in strategy; understand their competitive implications, their inner workings, and their constraints in meeting corporate goals.English

AustriaUniversity of ViennaInnovationMasterseminar: Innovation Processes and Policies in View of Grand Societal ChallengesMScInnovation studies have recently turned away from a broad focus on any type of innovation towards a specific focus on innovation that addresses grand societal challenges such as combating climate change (Schot & Steinmueller, 2018). Innovation policies have been reframed towards sustainability (e.g., McCann & Soete, 2020; Pontikakis et al., 2021), and the regional innovation systems approach has been reformulated to reflect challenge orientation (Tödtling et al., 2022). However, how to observe and measure the degree of challenge orientation of innovation systems and the innovation processes occurring within them, of innovation policies pursued, and of outcomes of these processes and policies is a critical but open question. The seminar will introduce students to the fundamentals of challenge-oriented innovation processes and policies and engage them in discussions on practical and methodological approaches and difficulties in observing and measuring challenge orientation.English

AustriaUniversity of ViennaContractContracts, coordination, and incentivesMScThis course is part of the module “Organization and Personnel I.” The module establishes fundamental concepts in the analysis of organizational structures and personnel administration. It focuses on the economic perspective which is augmented by drawing on approaches from behavioral and social sciences. This particular class introduces into incentive setting to control the behavior of actors in the organization. Human resources are key aspects to organizational success or failure. General managers are concerned with setting and implementing overall strategy. Achieving strategic objectives of the firm is only possible with an effective and efficient management of human resources. In this context, general managers have a leading role to set and implement the HR strategy. The implementation of the firm`s HR policies is best done with at least the participation of line managers in the field, rather than being left to HR specialists. Therefore we focus on the role of general (and other top-level) managers and on the wider spectrum of organizational implications in forming and implementing strategies. Related topics such as the operational details of personnel administration that concern HR specialists will be neglected. Emphasis will be put on the links between human resource practices of managers and strategic objectives of their firms. The first large part will be devoted to coordination problems within the company. The second large part will be devoted to the informational problems arising within the companies, i.e., adverse selection and moral hazard.English

DenmarkUniversity of Southern Denmark (SDU)BusinessBusiness DevelopmentMScThe content of the course can be broken down into roughly three sections that follow the process of developing a business: 1. Inception deals with addressing uncertainty about whether an idea will translate into a commercially viable business. Key issues revolve around whether a product or service will actually sell, whether the technology will work as anticipated, and is it worth expending money and effort to develop it. 2. Formation addresses how to best capture value once the idea is selected. Key issues involve how to assemble a team that will give a business the best chance of commercializing the idea and how to best monetize a new product to capture value (i.e. commercialize it yourself, license it to an established firm, or sell it off). 3. Achieving Sustainable Advantage confronts the challenge of how to compete in innovation intensive markets. Key issues include co-existing with established rivals, exploiting the vulnerabilities of incumbents, and the role of complementary products/services.Englishhttps://odin.sdu.dk/sitecore/index.php?a=fagbesk&id=72803&listid=9231&lang=en

DenmarkUniversity of Southern Denmark (SDU)SustainabilitySustainabilty MScThe course will give students knowledge about the economic theories and relevant tools to understand and analyze what sustainability means in relation to resources and the environment. The course presents cases where theory has been applied. It furthermore presents different interventions that can be used to seek (or not seek, as the case may be) sustainability along three key dimensions: scale (from local to global issues), intertemporal tradeoffs/timing (from the present, over the near future to the distant future) and actors (individuals, groups, countries). The UN Sustainable Development Goals are addressed individually and collectively. The course will give the students sufficient skills such that they can analyze the ways in which the use of resources and the environment for human purposes/economic activities can take place in more or less sustainable ways and which economic, political and demographic constraints make obtaining a sustainable world a difficult task. Finally, the course will also give the students competences in areas of understanding group behavior through small game experiments.English

FinlandAalto UniversityEntrepreneurshipCorporate Entrepreneurship and InnovationBScThe current business climate demands that companies – large or small – develop the capabilities to anticipate and respond to changes in their external environment. These changes may repre-sent opportunities or threats for companies. Instilling entrepreneurial behavior into an organiza-tion s practices and culture is a challenge for most established organizations – large or small. It is often assumed that large, established organizations are constrained by bureaucracy and are not as flexible and entrepreneurial as new small firms. There are, however, several examples of large companies (such as Reaktor, Sony, 3M and IBM), which have been able to create and sus-tain a competitive advantage by being consistently innovative and entrepreneurial. Changing customer needs, new technologies and agile competitors compel organizations to harness the innovative abilities, talents and passion of their employees. In this course, you will explore the foundations of corporate entrepreneurship, learn to develop, design and gather support for new initiatives, determine how to assess corporate entrepreneurship performance and propose ways to integrate innovative behavior into an organization.English

GermanyRuhr University BochumSustainabilityLaw, Sustainability and Climate ChangeThe topic of sustainability and climate change is here to stay. Despite the fact that citizens in many countries declare that combating climate change should be a top priority in politics and that they are willing to make changes in their individual lifestyles and behavior, many citizens keep reverting to their old, non-climate friendly habits (e.g. driving emissions-intensive cars, flying for holidays and so on). They do not promote any substantive changes in their behavior, even if they recognize a need to do so. This behavioral problem, which is widely attested in behavioral economics and sustainability research literature, poses the question of what might be possible to do to promote a long-standing change in behavior toward climate-friendlier and more sustainable standards and practices. This course will provide you with a critical reflection of the role of law broadly understood – of legal instruments and institutions – in the fight against climate change. In order to do this, it will provide you with an overview of the different legal instruments that have been adopted by legal systems worldwide (in Germany or otherwise) for incentivizing emissions reductions. It will also discuss the main challenges – from the point of view of behavioral studies – of changing behavior through law.English

GermanyJacobs University BremenPurchasingLean Supply ManagementThe first module component, Advanced Lean Methods, deals with the implementation and amplification of the 20th century lean methods in modern manufacturing processes associated with the kaizen philosophy. These include change management process, elimination of waste, one piece flow, pull principle, value stream mapping, 6 sigma and zero defects. The module component provides a theoretical overview of these methods and enables students to apply them in practice by participating in game-based activities in class. The module component is heavily focused on the applicability of lean methods, providing numerous examples from the industry. Specifically, students apply the value stream mapping method to a real-world case study. The second module component, Purchasing & Supply Management, deals with purchasing and supply management practices. The costs for procuring materials or services can represent a large portion of an enterprise’s total costs. Hence, purchasing and supply management are of crucial importance for the overall success of the company. In this module component students learn, using case studies, how to develop the right purchasing strategy for each material segment and how to select the right supplier for each material. Other topics include behavioral aspects of purchasing, negotiation, buyer-supplier relationship, supplier integration, supplier quality management, working capital management and innovation sourcingEnglish
GermanyJacobs University BremenPurchasingPurchasing and DistributionThe first part of the module deals with purchasing as a part of the entire business as well as with the prerequisites for profitable business overall. This part is based on group work and discussions, with a focus on collaborative approaches and on understanding and developing these approaches throughout the students’ careers. The aim here is to gain a deep understanding of the possibilities and challenges procurement offers and faces in an organization. Another aim is to improve economic thinking skills and gain an understanding of how the key elements influence a business and its financial standing. A major objective of the second part of the module is to equip students with a sound knowledge of processes and key business challenges within the field of distribution. Here, the evolution of distribution logistics from direct-to-store deliveries in the early 1970s up to same-day deliveries and omnichannel supply chains developed by companies today will be outlined. Based on that knowledge, new operational challenges imposed by e-commerce on the warehousing aspect of distribution logistics namely the emergence of e-fulfillment centers and the increasing importance of parcel and sorting delivery centers—will be addressed. Finally, last-mile-delivery concepts, with a focus on different business models (e.g., online retailers, the sharing economy), will be covered alongside the associated challenges for traditional transport and distribution strategies and novel solution approaches.English

GermanyChemnitz University of TechnologyInnovationInnovation EconomicsMScThe course covers economic aspects of technology, innovation, and industrial origanization, including theoretical and economic policy perspectives. The course presents equilibrium economics approaches to modeling and estimating technological progress, before turning to solutions beyond equilibrium economics. In particular, it discusses dynamical modeling of competition and technological change in replicator dynamics. Another focus of the course will be the economic theory of intellectual property rights, patents, and innovation incentives. Modern information economics and its peculiarities and their representation in economic models serve as an application at the end of the course: Why can open-source software be provided entirely without payment or any other compensation? Is using online social networks (Facebook, Linkedin, etc.) indeed free? Does software piracy and filesharing indeed cause damages to the music, film, and software sectors? Could artificial intelligence indeed completely replace human labour? And what would be the consequences of that?English
GermanyChemnitz University of TechnologyInnovationPredicting the future: Forecasting in innovation economics, financial economics, and development economicsMScThe economy is notoriously hard to predict. Nevertheless, or even because of that, large amounts of resources are devoted to making and improving these predictions. This is most evident for the prediction of macroeconomic variables, in particular the growth of GDP, but also unemployment, inflation, or tax revenue. These forecasts are covered in news reports, underlie policy making of fiscal and monetary authorities, and can themselves influence investment and consumption decisions by businesses and consumers. Given the important role that predictions play, this raises a number of questions: How has the age of machine learning and an abundance of big data changed the landscape of prediction in economics? Are there inherent limits to how well we can predict certain phenomena? What is the relation between economic theories, theoretical models, and predictions? What about causality? What is the role of prediction in economic policy making?English

GermanyTechnical University of MunichBusiness Implementation of Process Mining Algorithms: Transformative Business Knowledge Process discovery (cf. [1] for an introduction on the topic) provides a valuable means for companies to analyze process execution data. Tools like ProM (https://www.promtools.org/) or libraries like PM4Py (https://pm4py.fit.fraunhofer.de/) offer a wide range of process discovery algorithms but have to be either installed locally or are not straight-forward to use for non-technical experts. Therefore, within this practical course students will implement a webservice to provide process discovery results in a light-weight form in order to facilitate the analysis of process execution data for non-technical experts. The webservice should take a XES file as input and depict the results of a process discovery algorithm which is to be implemented by the students as well. For both, the webservice as well as the implementation of the discovery algorithm, the choice of the programming language is up to the students. English

NetherlandsEindhoven UniversityEntrepreneurshipDesign EntrepreneurshipMScInitially innovation was seen as a “technical or scientific” process. Then for a long time the focus was on ideation and venturing (e.g. Bell Mason). Venture capital firms became famous with it, but also inside companies a lot of venturing is done. Both like in startup/external venturing and also in companies the innovation success rate is low and in general there is no lack of ideas in these innovative actions and the success rate of these ventures remains low despite agile and lean start-up methodologies. So it is important to realize that innovation in startup or a company is not just a winning game for once only but a portfolio game with sustainable purpose. There are many “mechanisms” for innovation (e.g. Board of Innovation – Innovation Matrix [1], post growth entrepreneurship [2]).English

NetherlandsUniversity of TwenteInnovationInnovations in Sustainable Chain Management: AnalysisAll products and services we consume and use are part of at least one chain from production/design/development to consumption/use and eventually – in the case of products – waste generation (and sometimes, this may not be the end of a product). When we think of a chain of production/consumption of, for example, an electronic device such as your laptop, you may imagine that it’s not a ‘simple’ process: there are resources involved that need to be mined, parts to be designed, rules/laws to be obeyed, money to be made, carbon emissions to be offset (?) etc. Organising these elements including the people involved in the process such that the desired product comes out of it entails a fair share of management or governance. Analysing how this organisation can be improved to achieve more economically, socially and environmentally sound products and services, thereby contributing to a more sustainable future, is the core interest of the course.English

NorwayNorwegian School of EconomicsPurchasingPURCHASING STRATEGY AND SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENTBScPurchasing is a critical function for most companies. First, the purchasing function is critical because the purchasing costs account for a considerable share of the total costs for most companies (e.g., as high as 50%+ for industrial firms or as high as 80%+ for companies within retailing and trade). Second, the purchasing strategy is imperative to the effective implementation of the company´s overall business strategy in its output market, in the form of costs, quality, timely delivery, etc. Hence, purchasing decisions have to be done based on a thoroughly defined purchasing strategy embedded in the overall business strategy of the company, as well as based on an analysis of the supply market that the company operates in. In order to achieve purchasing strategy goals, the company must have an appropriate organization of its purchasing function as well as of its relations to its various suppliers. Finally, the company must systematically evaluate purchasing performance, both in terms of internal structure and processes, ability to meet legal and ethical standards, as well as the performance of its suppliers.English

NorwayNorwegian School of EconomicsSupplySupply Chain ManagementBSc, MScA supply chain consists of all parties involved in fulfilling a customer request. A supply chain may include manufacturers, suppliers, transporters, warehouses, retailers, customers, and also functions within an organization, such as marketing, operations and finance. Given such a broad scope and its importance in business, many companies have a whole department or job positions fully dedicated to supply chain management. In this course, we study supply chains, with particular emphasis on its effective management and the overall increased value it contributes to businesses. Specific topics included in the course are: design of supply chains, networks, global supply chain, online sales, sales and operations planning, demand forecast, incentive alignment in a supply chain, supply chain inventory management, managerial levers to improve supply chain profitability, sourcing decisions, chain-level coordination, pricing and revenue management principles, transportation, sustainability.English

NorwayNorwegian School of EconomicsBusinessBUSINESS MODEL INNOVATION IN THE DIGITAL ERABScBusiness model innovation in established firms involves changing the fundamental logic of how the firm does business and the value it creates for customers. While most established firms may not have such innovative ambitions, rapid market change, technological disruption, and unexpected competition pushes firms to rethink their traditional business models. This includes choices of how they can create, deliver, communicate, and capture value in a digital economy. But what are the factors that contribute to successful business model innovation in the digital era? How can managers of an established company assess when it is time to change their business model and which direction they should take? To answer these questions, we need to develop a good understanding of the nexus between business models, digitalization, and innovation – and how to apply it in practice.English

The purpose of this course is twofold. First, it sheds light on the nature of business ethical questions in general and aims to develop students’ ability to identify and make informed decisions related to ethical problems in business. Second, it explores the individual, social and organizational factors that determine the ethicality of behavior of firms, managers, and employees. These are key issues that will shape the future of business at a time when corporate conduct is subjected to increasing scrutiny and new business models developed to address questions of legitimacy and sustainability. Moreover, the course aims to develop students’ ability to understand the psychological, social and organizational mechanisms that produce desirable behaviors, so that they can build organizations in which ethical behavior is facilitated.English
NorwayNorwegian School of EconomicsBusinessENTREPRENEURSHIP AND BUSINESS MODEL DESIGNMScThe objective of this course is to provide students with the tools and theories to understand how entrepreneurs can create a business that allows them to follow their passion, provide value to the world and make money at the same time. Groups of students will closely collaborate with entrepreneurs and help them solve their real-life business challenges. Students then write a group term paper in the form of a practical consultancy report intended to help the entrepreneur design a better and more viable business model. Regarding theory, we first dive into the topic of entrepreneurship, discussing what kind of resources, networks, competences and strategies are necessary to advance innovative and entrepreneurial ideas. We then learn how these skills and processes can be applied to the design of new business models that underlie the creation of any business. We learn about different types of business model design (e.g., sustainable/circular business models, social business models, platform business models, etc.). We work on designing innovative business models by building a strong and convincing value proposition and finding smart ways to monetize this value.English
NorwayNorwegian School of EconomicsInnovationMANAGING CHANGE AND INNOVATIONMScThe rate of change in the external environment has triggered the emergence of new competitors and business models, which is pushing well-established firms to renew themselves. In this case-based course we draw on research to discuss how to enable the implementation of radical change and innovation in established firms. This includes strategies aiming for renewal, innovation and sustainability. Change and innovation can be particularly challenging in established firms due to legacy as well as structural and cultural inertia. Another well-known challenge has to do with balancing time and resources spent on delivering on current business with innovation and renewal. Through case discussions students gain hands-on practical experience of various aspects of organizing and managing the transformation process. Themes include: setting up structures and processes that enable change and innovation, understanding reactions to change and innovation, mobilizing support and managing stakeholders, orchestrating external partnerships, handling unforeseen events, and developing capacity for radical change and innovation.English
NorwayNorwegian School of EconomicsInnovationBUSINESS MODEL INNOVATION IN THE DIGITAL ERABScWhat do Amazon, Netflix, and Vipps have in common? The success of these companies did not come because of a new technology or a new product they invented. Instead, they built their success on designing an innovative business model by redefining the traditional ways of creating, delivering and capturing value. If done successfully, the result of such business model innovation can redefine the “rules of the game” and in some cases disrupt entire industries. Business model innovation in established firms involves changing the fundamental logic of how the firm does business and the value it creates for customers. While most established firms may not have such innovative ambitions, rapid market change, technological disruption, and unexpected competition pushes firms to rethink their traditional business models. This includes choices of how they can create, deliver, communicate, and capture value in a digital economy.English

In order to achieve their value-creating potential, the entrepreneur or entrepreneurial manager are faced with a range of complex challenges they have to address. These challenges vary from building a well functioning organization and mobilizing necessary resources to formulate and execute strategies that allow them to take advantage of the resources they have at their disposal.English

Second, students will apply these to a case (problem or policy related to sustainability), using a modified case study format: defining the problem, identifying main stakeholders, outlining and assessing options (solutions), and strategy for implementation. Examples of case topics include Norwegian policy issues (e.g., subsidies of electric vehicles, rush-hour taxes, petroleum licenses, technology development), or international issues (e.g., carbon trading, import of palm oil).English
NorwayNorwegian University of Life SciencesSustainabilityInterdisciplinarity and Expert Disagreement on SustainabilityResearch for a sustainable future requires that we synchronise efforts from multiple fronts. Yet, it is hard to find a topic on sustainability that is free from scientific controversy, political conflicts, or tensions in values. Priorities must often be made between environmental, societal, economic and political concerns. What appears to be the most sustainable solution for someone, somewhere, here and now, might have negative consequences for other groups, areas, places or times. For complex problems such as the climate crisis, loss of biodiversity and the transition to renewable energy, there are no simple solutions or answers. We depend on experts who are able to work together across disciplinary boundaries toward common solutions.English

NorwayNorwegian University of Science and TechnologyInnovation Innovation in Global HealthDoctoralTechnology and innovation is an integral part of healthcare, in both developing and developed countries. While understanding key concepts of epidemiology, health management and statistics are common topics to the study of Global Health, few courses focus on the importance of technology and innovation, its history, its present and future, and its inherent challenges. The course NRS8003 will introduce the key concepts of technology and innovation in global health, in an interactive way, using examples that have been successfully implemented, and those that have failed. We will analyze the key attributes of design, success and failures of technology in this course. The course will focus on the process of technology, development, design, optimization and implementation in low and middle income countries. We will also focus on when and why technology is needed, when it is necessary, and what information it can and cannot provide. In that regard, issues of ethics will also come into play. In addition, the course will analyze the history of technology in global health, the current state of technology and what the future technological needs may be. Broadly speaking, we will focus on three kinds of technologies: 1) successful examples of technology implementation 2) near-misses and 3) those that failed despite showing promise in early/ prototype stages. These lessons will guide the framework of our discussion about the need and the future of the technologies. Finally, we will also study the current bottlenecks, including social, technological and financial, that may hinder technology development and adoption in resource limited settings.English

NorwayNord UniversityBusinessSustainability in PracticeThe panorama of sustainability concerns and action has changed dramatically in recent years, and it is no longer limited to NGOs and social responsibility departments in organizations. Nobody who is currently active in business or public administration can escape dealing with sustainability challenges. What makes these challenges even more wicked is that they not only entail substantial uncertainty and volatility, but they are also often characterized by the blurring of facts and values. As a result, sustainability questions rarely have a single and clear solution, and require the ability to problem solve collaboratively across knowledge domains. With this in mind, this course seeks to provide an overview of sustainability challenges afflicting a range of sectors, as well as tools for how to think about sustainability and how to be an engaged actor in sustainability transitions. We will look into complex and often controversial sustainability questions from multiple viewpoints, debating problems and proposed and solutions with a critical but constructive attitude.English

NorwayUniversity of South-Eastern NorwayBusinessLean Product DevelopmentFurther educationLean is perhaps the most important concept that has been introduced to increase efficiency in manufacturing in modern times. In today’s fierce economic climate, many global firms have attempted to expand the lean concept from manufacturing to Product Development (PD) in order to sustain competitiveness. However, PD is very different from manufacturing, and there exist few documented examples of successful implementation of Lean in PD, other than inside Toyota where the term implementation may be somewhat misleading. The reason for this is the basic nature of PD—its purpose, tasks, process, people and perception of value—makes the understanding and application of Lean very different from its counterparts in manufacturing. This course gives the participant key insights into the fundamentals of Lean PD, its implementation, methods and practical tools, following an interactive and practical approach for learning. The overall objective is to define a common starting point for successful implementation and continuous improvement as the most essential part of any Lean strategy in PD.English

NorwayUniversity of OsloBusinessBusiness and Human RightsMScThe rise of contemporary economic globalisation has changed traditional discussions on the duties of businesses to increasingly being framed in terms of human rights and in a transnational and global manner. Yet, in spite of growing support for the idea that businesses should respect human rights, it is still far from having global acceptance and recognition. This course addresses recent developments in linking business practices and human rights (including corporate social responsibility (CSR)) within the UN and in other international organisations, and focusses on the efforts in making human rights an important normative framework for the conduct of business in different societal and political contexts. It offers arguments in favor of and against extending human rights to the corporate sector, and discusses legal developments, including normative and remedial mechanisms.

NorwayUniversity of OsloInnovationSustainability Transitions, Innovation and Social ChangeBScSocieties must transform to reduce their dependence on carbon-based energy sources and protect the environment. Such transitions must be just to reduce social and geographical inequality on both national and global levels. Sustainability transition studies have emerged as a both relevant and influential approach to study ongoing social, technological and institutional change towards a more sustainable future. Research based knowledge inform ongoing debates on how to scale up necessary sustainable transitions. This includes key sectors responsible for most of the global CO2 emissions; energy, transportation, food and construction. Innovation is a key element in transition studies.

NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityConsumption, Sustainability and Social ChangeMScUnsustainable consumption patterns and the upwards spiraling resource use embedded in these are at the core of the world’s sustainability challenges. And while overconsumption has been on political agendas for quite some time, very little progress—and often also little effort—has been made in dealing with it. This is the starting point of this course, together with an insistence on understanding consumption as a highly complex social phenomenon that involves much more than individuals making choices. The main focus of the course is on studying how consumption plays out in our everyday lives, as well how different social and material structures co-shape consumption patterns. The course presents a variety of social-scientific approaches to consumption with particular attention to the highly influential ‘practice turn’ seen in consumption research over the recent decades, as well as a range of case studies from both affluent societies and ‘emerging economies’. Possible avenues for changing consumption patterns in a more sustainable direction are discussed throughout the course.English
NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainability Corporate Governance and SustainabilityMScThe study of corporate governance is about the relationship between firms’ management, board of directors and investors, and how these relationships affect how firms operate and perform. This course puts particular emphasis on the relationship between corporate governance mechanisms and long-term sustainability for the firm and the broader economy. The first part of the course introduces fundamental principles of corporate governance, including the incentive problems in situations with asymmetric information. These issues are studied using the principal-agent models from contract theory. The course then proceeds to focus on recent empirical research on corporate governance, with a particular focus on sustainability and ESG (environmental, social and governance) issues. This includes topics on CEO pay, gender balance in the board room, and climate change.English
NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityPolitics of Sustainability in Public Health – Data-Driven Critical Conceptual AnalysisMScThe course draws attention to the power of key concepts in the sustainability agenda and more specially, how such concepts have come to accommodate various and sometimes conflicting ideological messages. Concepts such as sustainability, empowerment, partnership and resilience can for instance reflect both an urge for global solidarity and a requirement for self-management and improvement. The course engages participants in critical reflection about how concepts and their divergent and sometimes conflicting meanings impact how we frame and address public health and sustainability issues, thus fostering understanding of how socio-political processes affect environmental and health processes. An important method used in the course is data-driven critical conceptual analysis based on corpora. The development of free, open-access corpora and corpus analysis tools enables students and researchers anywhere in the world to question and investigate the semantic and affective meaning of the concepts they use in everyday language and that they tend to take for granted. This is a particularly powerful, but as yet underused resource by scholars in public health and critical sustainability studies.English
NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityFundamentals of International Community HealthMScThe course focuses on core areas related to international community health.

NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityGlobal Governance for Sustainable DevelopmentMScTo advance towards a green transformation we need global cooperation and governance. This course provides an overview of theory and practice of global governance emphasizing issue areas central to the achievement of a green transformation. We start by discussing theoretical approaches to global governance, and how they may help us make sense of recent geopolitical and global economic shifts, and their impact on a green transformation. We further discuss how international institutions may become arenas for changing ideas about what a green transformation entails: Is it about ‘sustainable development’, ‘environmental justice’, ‘de-growth’ or ‘ecological civilization’? What actors are promoting which ideas and what impact does it have? In the last part of the course, we delve into different issue areas, with a mix of specialized academics and practitioners. We will discuss the new geopolitics of the energy transition, progress and setbacks in climate governance, the importance of global governance of biodiversity, what role finance – and the Norwegian Petroleum fund in particular – play, the efficiency of global institutions set up to reduce poverty, how global food production is governed, and what global mechanisms that keep health improvements from reaching across the globe.English
NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityHuman Rights and Sustainable Development: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Theory and PracticesMScThis course addresses different ways of thinking about the relationship between development and human rights, and addresses critical contemporary issues as global and local poverty, national and global inequalities and environmental challenges. It discusses shifts over time in the conceptualisation of development and examines the increasingly more central place of human rights in the development discourse, as expressed in ideas about “development as freedom”, “rights-based development” and the “right to development” as a human right. It addresses the recent discourses on linkages between sustainable development and human rights, in view of new trends in globalization. It also explores the role of institutions (local, national and international) in safeguarding human rights (or the opposite, as obstacles to rights protection). The course gives scope for discussing the relationship between economic policies for social justice through human rights lenses, while also presenting selected legal cases and constitutional references on the right to development, and legal protection in development contexts.English

NorwayUniversity of StavangerBusinessSustainable Business Development and Innovation: IntroductionMScNo firm or organization operates in isolation. Rather the contrary is true. Via a multitude of complex relations to other agents and organizations, they are embedded in diverse sets of networks and socio-economic systems. This embeddedness thereby greatly matters for their business success and transition to more sustainable operations. For instance, it influences their access to critical inputs, such as human and financial capital as well as knowledge. Their embeddedness in local socio-economic systems takes center stage in this. In the end, most job hirings are local, the majority of production inputs are provided by nearby suppliers, and marketing, as well as distribution channels, are strongly shaped by access to transportation infrastructure and the activities of (local) branding initiatives as well as trade associations. The course presents students with the scientific underpinnings of the beyond-the-individual-firm perspective that are at the heart of modern approaches to sustainable business development. Drawing on core concepts and insights from the fields of Regional Science and Economic Geography, as well as Complex System Theories, students will learn about and discuss the roles that locations, networks, and system embeddedness play in their developments and for their transformation toward more sustainable business practices. The course thereby forms the basis for the subsequent courses: SBDI: The firm perspective and SBDI: The policy perspective.English
NorwayUniversity of StavangerBusinessSustainable Business PracticesMScIs economic growth constrained by scarce resources or environmental policies?

The course gives a thorough introduction to the literature on sustainable business strategies and practices. This is a cross-disciplinary field related to topics such as market analysis, institutional theory, resource economics, and business strategy.English
NorwayUniversity of StavangerSustainabilitySustainable transitions and innovationMScThe global challenges we are facing including the climate crisis, green restructuring, geopolitical tensions, and the need for further digitalization, impact firms‘ financial situations, and long-term growth strategies. As a response, they need to engage in and utilize a wide range of innovation. Consequently, to succeed in contemporary business life, it is essential to understand how technological shifts and global megatrends shape firms’ strategies, investment decisions, and day-to-day operations. Thereby, it is essential to realize that these shifts and trends simultaneously represent threats and opportunities. Either way, they call on firms to contribute to the transition towards a sustainable economy by means of innovation. This course addresses the consequences of the transition towards a more sustainable economy for the development of individual businesses and for regional as well as national economies. The course delves into the strategies for sustainable transitions, the introduction of business model innovations, and the innovation-based transformation of economic systems. It features insights into the increased internationalization of innovation processes in ‘green’ sectors such as renewable energy and sustainable food production.

We will cover both technical tools and substantive economic findings in this area. In particular, we will discuss different types of inequality (in annual versus lifetime incomes; at the top versus elsewhere; between versus within: firms, regions, genders, etc.; inequality in wealth, health, and others), why each type of inequality matters, what we know about them, and how they have changed over time. Similarly, we will discuss different types of microeconomic risks (facing households, workers, or firms), how they vary across the population, the non-Gaussian nature of these risks, and how these risks vary over the business cycle and over longer horizons. We will discuss the new insights into these questions provided by research from big data.English

NorwayUniversity of OsloBusinessBusiness and Human RightsMScThe rise of contemporary economic globalisation has changed traditional discussions on the duties of businesses to increasingly being framed in terms of human rights and in a transnational and global manner. Yet, in spite of growing support for the idea that businesses should respect human rights, it is still far from having global acceptance and recognition. This course addresses recent developments in linking business practices and human rights (including corporate social responsibility (CSR)) within the UN and in other international organisations, and focusses on the efforts in making human rights an important normative framework for the conduct of business in different societal and political contexts. It offers arguments in favor of and against extending human rights to the corporate sector, and discusses legal developments, including normative and remedial mechanisms. It examines strengths and weaknesses of the CSR movement and the scope for making human rights regulatory measures for corporate behavior. The students will study practical cases of CSR policies of selected companies in a variety of contexts.English

NorwayUniversity of OsloInnovationSustainability Transitions, Innovation and Social ChangeBScSocieties must transform to reduce their dependence on carbon-based energy sources and protect the environment. Such transitions must be just to reduce social and geographical inequality on both national and global levels. Sustainability transition studies have emerged as a both relevant and influential approach to study ongoing social, technological and institutional change towards a more sustainable future. Research based knowledge inform ongoing debates on how to scale up necessary sustainable transitions. This includes key sectors responsible for most of the global CO2 emissions; energy, transportation, food and construction. Innovation is a key element in transition studies. Profit oriented and social innovations in response to problems such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and land use change will be critically assessed. How innovations and transitions are embedded in larger processes of social and geographical change are discussed.English

NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityTransformations to SustainabilityMScHow do we transform ourselves and our societies at the rate and scale called for by both science and policy? How do we do this in an equitable and just manner? This course explores theories, policies, and practices associated with transformations to sustainability. It provides students with an in-depth overview of concepts, theories and approaches for understanding the relationship between individual change, collective change, and systems change. The course contextualizes research on transformation within the Anthropocene, an epoch where global environmental changes are challenging models of socio-economic organization and the mental models and worldviews associated with them. Readings and lectures will consider the drivers and dynamics of transformative change from multiple perspectives and paradigms, including those that embrace alternative ways of thinking about humanity’s relationship with the environment. Seminars will focus on the transformation in practice, including how we individually and collectively work with and scale transformative change.English
NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityConsumption, Sustainability and Social ChangeMScUnsustainable consumption patterns and the upwards spiraling resource use embedded in these are at the core of the world’s sustainability challenges. And while overconsumption has been on political agendas for quite some time, very little progress—and often also little effort—has been made in dealing with it. This is the starting point of this course, together with an insistence on understanding consumption as a highly complex social phenomenon that involves much more than individuals making choices. The main focus of the course is on studying how consumption plays out in our everyday lives, as well how different social and material structures co-shape consumption patterns. The course presents a variety of social-scientific approaches to consumption with particular attention to the highly influential ‘practice turn’ seen in consumption research over the recent decades, as well as a range of case studies from both affluent societies and ‘emerging economies’. Possible avenues for changing consumption patterns in a more sustainable direction are discussed throughout the course.English
NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainability Corporate Governance and SustainabilityMScThe study of corporate governance is about the relationship between firms’ management, board of directors and investors, and how these relationships affect how firms operate and perform. This course puts particular emphasis on the relationship between corporate governance mechanisms and long-term sustainability for the firm and the broader economy. The first part of the course introduces fundamental principles of corporate governance, including the incentive problems in situations with asymmetric information. These issues are studied using the principal-agent models from contract theory. The course then proceeds to focus on recent empirical research on corporate governance, with a particular focus on sustainability and ESG (environmental, social and governance) issues. This includes topics on CEO pay, gender balance in the board room, and climate change.English
NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityPolitics of Sustainability in Public Health – Data-Driven Critical Conceptual AnalysisMScThe course draws attention to the power of key concepts in the sustainability agenda and more specially, how such concepts have come to accommodate various and sometimes conflicting ideological messages. Concepts such as sustainability, empowerment, partnership and resilience can for instance reflect both an urge for global solidarity and a requirement for self-management and improvement. The course engages participants in critical reflection about how concepts and their divergent and sometimes conflicting meanings impact how we frame and address public health and sustainability issues, thus fostering understanding of how socio-political processes affect environmental and health processes. An important method used in the course is data-driven critical conceptual analysis based on corpora. The development of free, open-access corpora and corpus analysis tools enables students and researchers anywhere in the world to question and investigate the semantic and affective meaning of the concepts they use in everyday language and that they tend to take for granted. This is a particularly powerful, but as yet underused resource by scholars in public health and critical sustainability studies.English
NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityFundamentals of International Community HealthMScThe course focuses on core areas related to international community health.

NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityGlobal Governance for Sustainable DevelopmentMScTo advance towards a green transformation we need global cooperation and governance. This course provides an overview of theory and practice of global governance emphasizing issue areas central to the achievement of a green transformation. We start by discussing theoretical approaches to global governance, and how they may help us make sense of recent geopolitical and global economic shifts, and their impact on a green transformation. We further discuss how international institutions may become arenas for changing ideas about what a green transformation entails: Is it about ‘sustainable development’, ‘environmental justice’, ‘de-growth’ or ‘ecological civilization’? What actors are promoting which ideas and what impact does it have? In the last part of the course, we delve into different issue areas, with a mix of specialized academics and practitioners. We will discuss the new geopolitics of the energy transition, progress and setbacks in climate governance, the importance of global governance of biodiversity, what role finance – and the Norwegian Petroleum fund in particular – play, the efficiency of global institutions set up to reduce poverty, how global food production is governed, and what global mechanisms that keep health improvements from reaching across the globe.English
NorwayUniversity of OsloSustainabilityHuman Rights and Sustainable Development: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Theory and PracticesMScThis course addresses different ways of thinking about the relationship between development and human rights, and addresses critical contemporary issues as global and local poverty, national and global inequalities and environmental challenges. It discusses shifts over time in the conceptualisation of development and examines the increasingly more central place of human rights in the development discourse, as expressed in ideas about “development as freedom”, “rights-based development” and the “right to development” as a human right. It addresses the recent discourses on linkages between sustainable development and human rights, in view of new trends in globalization. It also explores the role of institutions (local, national and international) in safeguarding human rights (or the opposite, as obstacles to rights protection). The course gives scope for discussing the relationship between economic policies for social justice through human rights lenses, while also presenting selected legal cases and constitutional references on the right to development, and legal protection in development contexts.English

Recognise and evaluate different approaches that aim to decouple economic growth from environmental degradation, ecological footprints and carbon emissions and problematise different claims of decoupling in relation to welfare, equity and environmental degradation. Critically address the claims of alternative ideas for transforming the economic system(s) and practices, including ways to reconcile different societal needs with environment (for example post-growth, de-growth, responsible consumption and production).English
SwedenLund UniversitySustainabilitySocial Movements and SustainabilityMScThe course is a seminar course, although it starts with a few lectures on the history and different theoretical perspectives on social movements, introducing the students to the relevant literature. Then all students choose a real-life case of a social movement for a sustainability issue and, adopting a theoretical perspective from the literature, present the analysis of the case in a seminar for class discussion. (Depending on the number of enrolled students, seminars will be either by individuals or small groups of students.) The course ends by students writing an individual term-paper on one of the outstanding themes that emerge during class discussions in seminars.English

SwedenLund UniversityInnovation Economic History: Economics of InnovationMScThis course covers several areas of innovation economics, such as their characteristics, their driving forces of innovation and how innovation affects economic growth. It covers several sub-themes, such as: Market structures and innovation – describes how competitive structures and imperfect competition may induce innovation in different industries. Institutions and innovation – drawing on the systems of innovation literature, this theme addresses how the institutional framework affects innovation. Some of these aspects are related to national innovation systems (NIS), a concept for comparative analysis of innovative performance. Innovation processes and interdependencies within a more local or regional context are further analysed focusing on regional innovation systems (RIS). In addition to governing structures we address the role of different instruments such as standards, prizes and intellectual property rights such as patents for promoting innovation.English
SwedenLund UniversityInnovationEconomic History: Energy Transitions, Innovation and TradeMScBoth positive and normative aspects of the interplay between economic growth and energy are treated. Among the first aspects is the so called decoupling of energy and GDP, as well as CO2 and GDP. Relative and absolute decoupling is a central distinction of crucial importance for the sustainability of an energy system. Evidence and explanations for past decoupling are scrutinized, such as the third industrial revolution and the transition from commodity production to services. Normative aspects consider institutional and political factors which determine incentives for innovation. The course themes will be complemented by laboratory exercises and excursions.English
