There can be no real prospect of achieving sustainability without the active participation of the private sector. In their own interests as much as the planet’s, businesses need to get much more serious about being sustainable.

Norway Investments in Renewable Energy 'Could Change the World'

Norway Investments in Renewable Energy 'Could Change the World' | Production Engineering | Scoop.it

Brandon Baker With more than $750 billion of holdings in its sovereign wealth fund, Norway is on the brink of potentially making renewable energy investments around the world.

Erna Solberg, who will be named Norway’s second female prime minister, has already heard proposals from her government to use sovereign wealth fund money to invest in sustainable companies and projects in developing countries, Climate News Network reported today. Leader of the conservative party, Solberg won the election in September.
She hasn’t publicly discussed the specific companies and projects the country might invest in, but there are already high hopes.
“If Norway actually does this, it will be an unprecedented shift in the global investment community and also for tangible action on climate change,” said Samantha Smith, head of the global climate and energy initiative at the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
Financial analysts predict that other nations will follow Norway’s lead and also invest in renewable energy projects. Pension funds in Denmark and the Netherlands already support the renewables sector.

Scientific Trading Dynamics: metaphor to study knowledge transfer and Knowledge Trading Impact in the sciences and social sciences

Scientific Trading Dynamics: metaphor to study knowledge transfer and Knowledge Trading Impact in the sciences and social sciences | Production Engineering | Scoop.it

 

Abstract

We use a trading metaphor to study knowledge transfer in the sciences as well as the social sciences. The metaphor comprises four dimensions: (a) Discipline Self-dependence, (b) Knowledge Exports/Imports, (c) Scientific Trading Dynamics, and (d) Scientific Trading Impact. This framework is applied to a dataset of 221 Web of Science subject categories.

We find that:

(i) the Scientific Trading Impact and Dynamics of materials science and transportation science have increased;

(ii) biomedical disciplines, physics, and mathematics are significant knowledge exporters, as is statistics and probability;

(iii) in the social sciences, economics, business, psychology, management, and sociology are important knowledge exporters; and

(iv) Discipline Self-dependence is associated with specialized domains which have ties to professional practice (e.g., law, ophthalmology, dentistry, oral surgery and medicine, psychology, psychoanalysis, veterinary sciences, and nursing). 

 

The autors:

"We developed a set of concepts to describe scientific trading. Using these concepts, we fashioned a framework comprising four dimensions: (a) Discipline Self-dependence, (b) Exports/Imports, (c) Scientific Trading Dynamics, and (d) Scientific Trading Impact. This framework enabled us to develop a unique, data-rich bird’s-eye view of trends in knowledge trading between disciplines and fields. Our study reveals the permeability and self-sufficiency of different scientific and social scientific disci-plines. The findings should stimulate further research into the nature and dynamics of disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity and also help inform science policy making.
