Sciences and Engineering

Cognitive modelling

This spring school will cover four different modeling paradigms: ACT-R, Nengo, PRIMs, and Accumulator models. It thereby offers a unique opportunity to learn the relative strengths and weaknesses of these approaches.

Islands as Laboratories for Sustainability
Islands are special cases for Sustainable Development. Methodologically and scientifically, islands are ideal ‘laboratories’ for sustainable landscape stewardship. Islands are unique in both attractiveness and climate vulnerability, they are relatively isolated and ‘on their own’ compared to mainland areas, yet they are also more dependent and need to be well-connected to other areas more than mainland areas. The summer school is aimed at combining all these different perspectives.

Mining industry, CSR and Local Development

We will focus on the local perspective, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and ecnomics of mining in Tanzania. We will have lectures and field visits, and will advise local parties.
